The Value of Shopping Locally is Powerful: Oliver’s Markets Releases Results of Updated Research

Santa Rosa, CA February 8, 2016 – Oliver’s Markets is releasing the results of an updated report exploring the economic value of shopping locally. Both the latest report and the original 2011 report were conducted by Dr. Robert Eyler, business consultant and Professor of Economics at Sonoma State University.

The results of Going Local as a Retailer: Oliver’s Market 2016 include the following findings:

  • When a consumer buys a locally produced product from Oliver’s, the financial benefit to Sonoma County is 2 ½ times greater than when purchasing a national brand from a chain store.
  • When a consumer buys a locally produced product from Oliver’s, the local taxes generated by that sale is almost three times greater than purchasing a national brand from a chain store.
  • For every $1 Oliver’s spends on payroll, Oliver’s local focus supports another 81 cents in payroll spending at the Sonoma County producers supported by the company.

Oliver’s Markets Withdraws Appeal to the Shops at Austin Creek - Prickett’s Nursery Shopping Center

Oliver’s Markets announces the withdrawal of their appeal to the Shops at Austin Creek (Prickett’s Nursery) project being developed by Codding Commercial on Highway 12 at Calistoga Road in eastern Santa Rosa. The withdrawal of the appeal is based on the applicant’s commitment to revise and re-engineer the project and proposed site use to mitigate the environmental impacts, including traffic and air quality. The decision comes days before the Santa Rosa City Council was set to discuss the project at their December 15 meeting.

The agreement between the three parties comes as a result of concerns raised during the peer review of the application that made the case for a full Environmental Impact Report to be filed. As a result of the peer review, the developer will adjust and re-purpose one of the major buildings in the project.

The revised plans will include the CVS Pharmacy, and a collection of retail shops, restaurants, and services. The large specialty store in the initial plans will be reimagined as a group of shops and smaller buildings.

Where "Local" Means Sonoma County

To us Local means Sonoma County -- period. Not Marin, not Napa, and definitely not the state of California, as some of our competitors define it.

From the day we opened our doors in 1988, we’ve built our business on the simple premise that the best food and wine in the world are produced here, in Sonoma County. We didn’t feel like we were pioneers at the time, but as people have come to understand and embrace the value of locally grown and made food and the value of shopping locally, we realize we were part of the early days of the movement.

As a Sonoma County business, we’ve built enduring relationships with local growers, makers, and manufacturers, because they make the foods and wines we love. Many of them were getting started when we were. Now they are nationally known, but for us, they are still old friends who often delivered products to our Cotati store in their cars back in the late 1980s.

Along with local products being excellent choices for taste and quality reasons, buying locally also improves our local economy. The dollars you spend at local retailers buying local products support other local businesses and our tax base, too!
