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 reinvested locally.
When the same amount is spent at a national chain, only $14 goes back into the local economy.
The study was done by the Louisville Independent Business Alliance.
