Welcome to APG – A Place to Go
Home is here and where I will stay.
We at APG search around Oklahoma for start-ups and new businesses we feel represent the spirit of our great state. How many times have you been in a store and realized “hey, these guys aren’t from around here!” How can they have any idea what I could possibly want?
I don’t know about anyone else but here where I live I want to have a sense of community. I want to know my hard earned dollars aren’t just going to end up in some fat cat’s pockets in New Jersey that has 300 box stores all alike across our nation. We need the personal feel. We need our tax dollars going to our local area. I take civic pride in knowing I’m supporting family owned businesses.
All that sounds fine and dandy but what’s wrong with Wal-Mart? Arkansas is a neighboring state… everyone else shops there. There is nothing wrong with Wally World but other than local taxes and money going to employees, the profit gets shipped out to fund some other project.
So I have created this site to look for businesses I feel deserve to be visited by locals. The owners are from around here. They take part in our community. They donate to charities and other causes which support the needy not the greedy. They support any worthy cause. They enjoy calling this place home. They are the types of people you don’t mind inviting over to your house for coffee or tea. Pull up a chair and tell me about yourself!
Feel free to comment below if you have a local Oklahoma business you would like for us to look in on and review. Stories of good deeds and all are welcome!
Thank you for reading our first post!
