For branding considerations, why is it important to have a memorable local number?

People are proud of their neighbourhoods and prefer to patronise local companies. When you call, the place from where you are calling will be the first thing that someone notices. If they notice their own area code, you'll have already made a valuable connection with them by demonstrating that you're both from the same neighbourhood.

People not only want to support local companies, but they also have a higher faith in businesses in their own neighbourhoods. It's simpler to trust that an order placed with a firm in your own town or city will come on time and in full than it is to trust that an order placed with a company in another location will provide the same results.
