Editor’s Note: The following letter to the editor is in response to Ask-A-Candidate Question No. 27, which addressed the number of candidates who purchased their campaign materials locally. This – in turn – was asked in response to a question asked at the Oct. 13 All-Candidates Forum held by Smith Music, MorinvilleNews.com and the Morinville Fire Department.
Shop local … yes. Shop local at all cost … NO!
Some businesses do not deserve our/my business. The prices are too high at some stores. We are all loyal to our hard earned dollar. Some stores just do not have good service. Some stores have produce rotting on the shelves.
Some places feel JUST because they are in Morinville that they have a right to our business. They quickly blame the town and individuals for not shopping there.
How about trying harder to get our business. Getting involved with town events that bring thousands of people past your store front.
I could go on and on.
Earn my/our business and we will shop at your place of business.
