Small businesses are hurting right now and will be for the foreseeable future. It is a stark reminder that we cannot just express concern during a pandemic; that we have to support local year round for when people like myself are avoiding crowds for periods of time. Many people opt for big box stores over small businesses, but I urge you all to instead shop small whenever you’re able.
Shopping local can be more expensive, but it is a small price to pay to help to build a better local economy, reduce environmental impact, put your taxes to good use, create jobs, get better customer service, keep the community unique, and you encourage local prosperity.
