WHY PURCHASE FROM BLACK PEARL BOOKS ?

Imagine a community without retail options. Without buildings to meet with friends.
Without places to take your children for story time.  Without a place to connect with others.
Is that a community you'd want to live? 

When you shop at an independently owned business, your entire community benefits.  Here are some facts:

 
  • Spend $100 at a local-owned business and $52 of that stays in your community. 
  • Spend $50 at a national chain and keep $6.50 in the local community.
  • Spend $50 online with a remote vendor with no sales tax collected and keep not one penny in your local community.
  • Local businesses donate to charities at more than twice the rate of national chains.
  • More independents means more choice, more diversity, and a truly unique community.


YOU HAVE THE POWER TO CHOOSE. 
Make a direct impact on your community by supporting independent retail stores.  For most of us, it's never about the products we sell, but about the people we serve.
