Why Shopping Local Matters—An Essay by Stephen D. Mayer

December 22, 2020 | Filed Under Things I Think About | No Comments

Anyone who has spent more than a few minutes on my blog knows that I am very much in the Shop Local / Shop Small / For The Sake Of All That Is Good In The World Do NOT Buy At Amazon camp.

This essay by Stephen D. Mayer, co-owner of Books Inc. with his wife Patty, is a wonderful expression of the importance of shopping locally:
“We believe in supporting local companies and appreciate the value they add to communities. Before you push that button on your computer and buy a book online at Amazon, remember the Lorax’s words somewhat paraphrased, “unless you support your local business, the business will be gone forever.”
Please buy local.”

It’s a short read, and quite worth your time.
