There are a thousand great reasons to shop at your local business. Here's one from Creamistry, a FiveStars merchant since 2013, offering delicious made-to-order nitrogen ice cream. "We value and cherish the local communities of each of our stores and do what we can to give back, mainly through in-store fundraising events. Our stores hold these fundraising events all year long in which we directly donate a set % of all sales from the event to the organization. We welcome and host events with all types of clubs, organizations, schools, non-profits, and other community-based groups. Organizations can apply for a fundraising event directly through " #lovelocal

Running a small business is a passionate affair. For FiveStars merchant JuiceLand, that passion is making fresh juices and smoothies. And it's paid off. From their first shop in Austin near Barton Springs Pool, JuiceLand has grown to 18 locations throughout Texas and 1 in Brooklyn. Founder Matt Shook draws his energy from the community he serves and it's inspired him to develop a culture of giving back. JuiceLand dedicates a monthly budget in support of local charities in the areas of sustainability, child development, wellness and the arts. If that weren't enough they kicked off a program called Feel Good, Do Good featuring a special drink and donating 50% of the profits to chosen local non-profit organizations. High Five to all the folks at JuiceLand. How about you? What does your local business mean to you?
