Why Choose a Small Company?

When it comes to choosing where to spend your hard-earned money, have you ever considered supporting small, family-owned businesses? Here are 5 compelling reasons why you should consider doing business with these unique establishments:

1. Personalized Service

Small, family-owned businesses often prioritize building relationships with their customers. When you walk into their store or contact them for a service, you can expect a personalized experience tailored to your needs. You're not just another number to them - you're a valued customer they want to build a lasting relationship with. At MI MED, we've been supporting the Waterford community for eight years and have had relationships with customers for just as long. Its not unusual to walk into our store and we remember stories about you and your family.

2. Local Economic Impact

By supporting small, family-owned businesses, you are directly contributing to the local economy. These businesses often source their products locally, hire local employees, and reinvest their profits back into the community. Your support helps create jobs, boost the local economy, and foster a sense of community pride.

3. Unique Products and Services

Small, family-owned businesses often offer products and services that you won't find in larger chain stores. Whether it's handcrafted goods, specialty items, or personalized services, these businesses bring a unique touch to the market. By doing business with them, you're supporting creativity, innovation, and diversity in the marketplace. MI MED is a proud member of the Waterford Chamber of Commerce, enjoy frequenting local businesses and offering sponsorships at community events.

4. Expertise and Passion

Many small, family-owned businesses are born out of a passion for their craft. The owners and employees are often experts in their field, with years of experience and a deep knowledge of their products or services. When you choose to do business with them, you're not just getting a product or service - you're benefiting from their expertise, passion, and dedication. The owners at MI MED have worked in some capacity in medical supplies and healthcare for years. If we don't have an answer for you, we can find it.

5. Community Connection

Small, family-owned businesses are an integral part of the local community. They sponsor local events, support charitable causes, and contribute to the overall well-being of the community. By supporting these businesses, you're helping to strengthen the fabric of your community and create a more vibrant, connected neighborhood.

Next time you're considering where to shop or who to hire for a service, think about the impact your choice can have. Supporting small, family-owned businesses is not just about making a purchase - it's about investing in your community, fostering relationships, and celebrating the unique contributions of these special establishments.
