Shopping at locally owned businesses is easy. So next time you’re out and about, getting ready to do some shopping, please think local. Here are ten examples:1) Buy a book at a neighborhood book store. 2) Eat lunch at a local sub shop. 3) Purchase a birthday present at a local gift shop. 4) Buy ingredients for your next family dinner at a farmer’s market.
5) Work off that family dinner and join a local gym. 6) Buy a child’s toy at a local toy store. 7) Get your string trimmer from a local hardware store. 8) Get your next prescription filled at a local pharmacy.
