Instead of the "big box" major chain stores, spend you money at smaller, local stores and support your own community.
We hear a lot about how "this" or "that" affects the small business owner. Republicans especially love to talk about helping the small business owner. This time, they are right. Time to put our wallets where our mouth is and do so. If you plan to spend today - go to a local small business and keep your dollars in the community.
