Re: Local shopping
In my favourite bookstore I am greeted by a gregarious, knowledgeable employee that I can’t find elsewhere but in my town. At my favourite dress shop, staff knows my lifestyle, size and colour preference. When I arrive at my favourite eatery, my latte is begun with a smile. I can slake my thirst for movies and entertainment in the downtown as well — in my town. In short, I shop locally because I’m valued. Whenever donations are asked for by groups doing fundraisers, our local merchants are always generous. They support us, let’s support them.
