Think small

November 29, 2012 


Thank you, Tri-City Herald, for the article, "Keeping it local in Tri-Cities," on Nov. 22. It's the small businesses that keep us afloat. I'm tired of going to all of the "cookie cutter" stores and supporting their big revenue. They count their profits in the six and seven digits, while many of those who have small businesses work to keep family fed and clothed.

True, the prices may be a little higher in some cases, but keeping it local is the thing to do. In the long run, it benefits all. I was out on Nov. 23, Small Business Saturday, spending my locally grown dollars in many stores in the region.

Tri-City Herald is pleased to provide this opportunity to share information, experiences and observations about what's in the news. Some of the comments may be reprinted elsewhere in the site or in the newspaper. We encourage lively, open debate on the issues of the day, and ask that you refrain from profanity, hate speech, personal comments and remarks that are off point. Thank you for taking the time to offer your thoughts.
