Why Shopping Local Goes Further in the Long Run!

Did you know that Locally owned businesses pick the products they sell based on what they know you like and want? Local businesses carry a broader selection of exceptional products because they buy for their own individual markets. They have YOU in mind!

Each community has its own distinct personality and therefore shop accordingly. When you purchase online from a large retailer not in your area, it makes it harder for the local store to follow the local trends. Even the larger stores in the area are following local trends, so why not take advantage of the fact that you can walk in and check it out personally, before you buy? Overall you not only support a local shop owner, but you save money on high quality products picked with You in mind!

At Targeted Merchant Solutions, we get Shop Local. We work with our individual store owners to help them keep their POS purchases down so that they can pass the savings onto you. Not only do we help them with their purchase power, but we are there around the clock when their systems go down, they have a cc issue, or better yet, we can personally come to their store and make sure that everything is up to date and running smoothly. Bigger POS companies cannot do that. But we can! Because we have YOU in mind! From the shop owner to the local resident making purchases, we want your experience to be the best.

Contact us to learn more on how we can help your place of business better overall. We are more than a POS company! We are a small business just like YOU!

What Goes Around Comes Around

What Do We Mean?

When we talk about our “What Goes Around Comes Around” mentality, it goes far beyond us offering card processing and occasionally stopping in to check on our merchants.  We firmly believe in patronizing and supporting our merchants, as well as other businesses right in our areas.  Merchant or not, when local businesses stick together and encourage and support one another, good things happen.  Growth happens.  Support happens.  Community happens.

Rooted in Community

Our local businesses can be an incredible tool for growth, but the sense of community is really what drives and inspires Targeted Merchant Solutions.  We make sure to go the extra mile in order for our merchants to know just how important they are to us, and we are certain to always lift up and recommend small local businesses when the chance arises.  Heck, we’ve even been known to run terminal paper over to a nearby restaurant because while we were grabbing lunch we overheard they were running low.

Let’s Do This Together

Imagine the possibilities if all local businesses firmly believed and practiced “What Goes Around Comes Around…”  We see the trend in shopping local and supporting one another locally, and we want to keep that momentum going.  Won’t you help us?  Support your local shops.  It can make awesome things happen.

Keeping It Local

Find Our Crew Out & About

Myrtle Beach, SC

Our President, Jennifer King, can be found all over Myrtle Beach and the surrounding area.  (We think there might be some kind of magic involved because she seems to be everywhere at once).  You can catch her getting a manicure with Melanie at Élan Day Spa, getting her hot yoga on at OM Yoga, or jetskiing on the ICW courtesy of  Myrtle Beach Watersports during her downtime.

Southern Pines, NC

Kimmi Fifield, the Sales and Support Lead, holds down the fort at our headquarter office on Broad Street in Southern Pines.  She is typically fueled by Swank Coffee Shoppe and grabs a quick bite from Nature’s Own or Sweet Basil anytime she gets a chance.  Hot Asana helps both Kimmi and Paisley find their calm with a once a week hot yoga session.

The Director of Marketing, Paisley Downing, is rarely spotted without her toddler sidekick, Finn, when around town.  The Country Bookshop is a favorite spot for her and Finn.  She gets her caffeine fix (to keep up with her little guy) at the Roast Office in nearby Pinehurst and her wine fix (“he whines, I wine,” she says) at the Wine Cellar.

St. Petersburg, FL

Director Jan is living the dream in St. Petersburg, FL.  She works hard and plays hard…when it’s time for a cold one, she can be spotted at Mastry’s Brewing Company.  When it’s time to eat, Ichiban Japanese Restarurant & Sushi Bar is a go to for her.

 Ready to Feel the Difference?

If your current merchant service provider isn’t giving your local small business the support you were expecting, why not find out about the Targeted Merchant Solutions difference?  We are all about a local consultative approach, and we know that through our local support, our communities can truly thrive!
