Where we shop is a personal choice. Most people simply shop for the best price and don’t realize what it ultimately costs them and their community. When you buy from local retailers, 45% of the profits stay in your community. When you buy from a big box retailer only 18% remains. When you buy with Amazon or any online retailer, the number falls even more. There’s also labor, freedom of speech, antitrust, economic, financial, and ethical reasons I won;t shop with Amazon. I pay a little more but the relationships I;ve built with my local retailers will last a lifetime.
