I prefer to shop locally whenever possible.

I support them and they are able to better support their community. It's a different sort of chain, that.
Another thing about shopping locally. Late September while in Altadena Hardware I bumped into the owner of Merit Cleaners. She asked if I "...remembered that I had a dress to pick up"? It had been some time since I'd left it, so I was really glad for the reminder.

When would that have happened at a big chain store?
