SaturdaySocial
MegaFauna is launching Summer Saturday Socials for Start ups! The Saturday Social is an opportunity for new and emerging businesses to set up a one day pop-up store at MegaFauna to tout their brand and sell merchandise.

This opportunity allows new and existing businesses a chance to focus on a one day promotion at an well known and established store front. Each event is tailored to the structure and concepts as unique as the products being offered.

“Businesses who set up booths at large scale events are oftentimes lost in the shuffle, so we wanted to provide a more focused campaign for these groups to highlight their full product offerings.” John McCaskill, owner MegaFauna

If you or someone you know might find interested or benefit from hosting or attending one of these progressive promotions please forward along this information.

Inquiries for Saturday Social at MegaFauna may be directed to manager@megafaunastore.com

New Years Resolutions to Shop Local at MegaFauna in 2014

New Years Resolutions to Support Local in 2014

In keeping with tradition and end of year tidings, we take a moment to give thanks for all the generous support of our dedicated customer base and network of artists across the country. For the time and relentless pursuit of the independent creative lifestyle, the reward is often not harbored in the results of our efforts but the commitment itself. We applaud your efforts to support and show our recognition in getting up every day and pay forward your capacity for change and continue to create and forge new frontiers, new styles, new energy in hopes of creating a new future.

For those who continue to fall into the convenient trappings of box corporate mindset, we propose a set of New Years Resolutions to heighten awareness and provide a course of action; that in supporting local, you are really supporting yourself and your community. This support is not simply aesthetics or some catch phrase, there are very real and substantial ramifications to local and global economies, both monetary and socially.

And it is worthwhile to note, that the opposite is true. If you continue to support the models and methods which pay big corporations, big salaries thru mass production this will in turn reduce the positive effects garnered by supporting local. When possible carry this list with you and find a way to engage in the state, city and community where you reside. We are all working toward the ideal, taking care of our family and friends, finding time to enjoy our lives in a healthy and sustainable way and doing so with style and grace so that we can all bring ourselves up.

The community of support it takes to elevate the standard of living for us all resides in our own decisions, day to day, on a micro level rippling out to the community at large. Whether you are making first steps in adopting a “support local” philosophy or helping to spread the word thru your actions, we believe these ten steps are essential to understanding what is at stake.

Ten Reasons to Support Local:

1.  Local Character and Prosperity

 

In an increasingly homogenized world, communities that preserve their one-of-a-kind businesses and distinctive character have an economic advantage.

 

2.  Community Well-Being

 

Locally owned businesses build strong communities by sustaining vibrant town centers, linking neighbors in a web of economic and social relationships, and contributing to local causes.

 

3. Local Decision-Making

 

Local ownership ensures that important decisions are made locally by people who live in the community and who will feel the impacts of those decisions.

 

4.  Keeping Dollars in the Local Economy

 

Compared to chain stores, locally owned businesses recycle a much larger share of their revenue back into the local economy, enriching the whole community.

 

5.  Job and Wages

 

Locally owned businesses create more jobs locally and, in some sectors, provide better wages and benefits than chains do.

 

 

6.  Entrepreneurship

 

Entrepreneurship fuels America’s economic innovation and prosperity, and serves as a key means for families to move out of low-wage jobs and into the middle class.

7. Public Benefits and Costs

 

Local stores in town centers require comparatively little infrastructure and make more efficient use of public services relative to big box stores and strip shopping malls.

 

8.  Environmental Sustainability

 

Local stores help to sustain vibrant, compact, walkable town centers-which in turn are essential to reducing sprawl, automobile use, habitat loss, and air and water pollution.

 

9.  Competition

 

A marketplace of tens of thousands of small businesses is the best way to ensure innovation and low prices over the long-term.

 

10.  Product Diversity

 

A multitude of small businesses, each selecting products based, not on a national sales plan, but on their own interests and the needs of their local customers, guarantees a much broader range of product choices.
