This is a sermon we've delivered before and one we will deliver again. Our communities need people to support local businesses in order to prosper. Not only does shopping local help individual owners and employees, it supports the tax base and improves the quality of life in our town.
We can understand the attraction of an out of town shopping excursion. We would only ask that before making a purchase, ask yourself, "Can I get this in my hometown, or at least in my home county?"
