Excerpt From The Local Business Marketing Book

On what is a local business:

A local business is any business that does business within some local radius or geographical limit that is typically no wider than the few nearest cities, with the limit often being narrower than that and as narrow as a few city blocks depending where most customers would realistically come from. For example, if you provide handyman services, even though traveling far isn't ideal, you might travel up to 60 miles to do a job, but if your business is a liquor store, most of your customers will come from no more than a few block radius surrounding your business.

Local services and local businesses can be anything from hair salons to construction and home repair, to restaurants to gyms to medical offices to laundromats to grocery stores, and many other similar businesses.
