Marquette, MIDecember 1, 2014 – Internet Sales… Good or Not?

Today is “Cyber-Monday”… the day internet sales are traditionallly the highest of the year.

I appreciate the ability to purchase items that may not be available in my area, and In my “RIGHT MIND” I beleive that is exactly why internet sales exist. 

As someone who believes we should all “practice what we preach” I don’t buy items on line that are available at local stores.  I like to see the items and hold them in my hands to assess them.  For that privilege, I am willing to pay a little more for the same item locally – I believe it makes sense.  As a bonus… often times, the items bought locally are NOT more expensive than on line… and you don’t have to wait.

It bothers me that so many people today will go to a store… let the staff explain the benefits and comparisons… AND THEN the weasels go on line to buy the same thing!

When you buy locally, the money stays in town and pays the wages of everyone in that store.  When you buy locally, the employees of that store have money to spend in other local businesses – which helps the local economy.

So this Christmas Season (and all year-round) SUPPORT YOUR LOCAL BUSINESSES.  Small local stores and Big Box Stores both support local economies, so “size doesn’t matter”!

Don’t be lumped in with the loners who are afraid to leave their homes… or those who shop on line so they don’t have to put pants on!  Get out there and support your community!
