Local restaurant prospers in the recession by using IMS Barter to buy goods and services for their business.
"I have been a member of IMS since 2006. I feel it was the best decision I have ever made concerning my business. My IMS dollars are great discretionary money that I can spend anyway I want. It gives me the flexibility to do things with my home, office, vehicles, and travel without taking cash out of my business. I have also learned that membership gives me new cash customers also. If I take excellent care of other IMS members then they will in turn send non IMS members that are their friends to me. So I think it is a WIN WIN for everyone."
