Do you support your local small businesses? Do you often shop at large retailers or online, or do you do a little of everything?
If it cost more to shop at a local small business but you were greeted by name every time you came in and they offered their time and advice to ensure you made an informed purchase would you still shop with them?
What if the item you wanted was available online or at a large retailer for less and you could save some money on your purchase?
Are the days of stopping by the mainstreet cafe in the morning for a cup of coffee or in the afternoon for lunch part of your daily routine, or do you know the number of your usual value meal at the big chain drive-through by heart?
