Buying local pays off for Louisville

Posted: Updated:

LOUISVILLE, KY. (WDRB) -- Buying local is paying off big-time for Louisville.  A recent study found that for every $100 spent at a locally-owned, independent business, more than half of that is re-invested locally.

When the same amount is spent at a national chain, only $14 is re-invested.

The study was done by the Louisville Independent Business Alliance.
