The Andersonville Study summary:

-- Local merchants generate substantially greater economic impact than chain firms.

-- Replacement of local businesses with chains will reduce the overall vigor of the local economy.

-- Changes in consumer spending habits can generate substantial local economic impact.

-- Great care must be taken to ensure that public policy decisions do not inadvertently disadvantage locally owned businesses. Indeed, it may be in the best interests of communities to institute policies that directly protect them.
