Today the radio station is encouraging you to shop local first. We want you to think of the implications of buying online versus local Mom & Pop’s. Of course we are all on a budget and must watch our expenses, but often the “sales” we see online are inflated prices for said “sale”, and we can often be getting inferior products as well.
When you shop local you help the community in which you live. The more local businesses that must close up shop, the fewer cars they buy, they won’t be buying a bigger home, they won’t be using your lawn services, they will have the time to clean their own pools and won’t have the extra money to eat at your restaurant. You get the picture. We are all affected. Think before you purchase. Even if you shop at national big box stores, they are still staffed with local employees. Shop Local First!!
