Kona Stories is a proud affiliate of IndieBound.  IndieBound is a community-oriented movement begun by the independent bookseller members of the American Booksellers Association.  It brings together booksellers, readers, indie retailers, local business alliances, and anyone else with a passionate belief that healthy local economies help communities thrive.  Supporting local, indie businesses means that dollars, jobs, diversity, choice, and taxes stay local, creating strong, unique communities and happy citizens.

When you shop at an independently-owned business, your entire community benefits:
  • Spend $100 at a local and $68 of that stays in your community.
    Spend the same $100 at a national chain, and your community only sees $43.
  • Local businesses create higher-paying jobs for our neighbors.
  • More of your taxes are reinvested in your community - where they belong.
  • Buying local means less packaging, less transportation, and a smaller carbon footprint.
  • Shopping in a local business district means less infrastructure, less maintenance, and more money to beautify your community.
  • Local retailers are your friends and neighbors - support them and they’ll support you.
  • 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.
