Does local shopping mean LOCAL? If so, who is local?Posted Wednesday, November 21, 2012, at 9:56 AM
This came fromm another post but since I am not a big shopper it will be good to see everyone else's response. I am not sure how to answer it.
"Since this is a post of random ramblings, and I'm sure you, Steve, are probably the most reliable source to answer my query, I'll say what's on my mind.
Black Friday is coming up, and the economy as a whole is just blah. How many people are gonna be lined up at Wal-Mart, buying their over-priced stuff made in China?
How will that boost our own economy?
I've contemplated buying only from local businesses for Christmas this year, except I only know of a handful of actual Shelbyville businesses.
Can you offer a list of all the area businesses to make my shopping a little easier, Steve? I'd appreciate it. Thanks!
