Main Streets matter: Shop local this holiday season

christmas-storeForget the Internet and the mall. Show support for innovative, independent local business owners instead. It’s a win-win situation for all.

If you have not yet finished your holiday shopping — or, like me, haven’t even started it — then I would like to suggest a challenge. This is what I’m planning to do, and it would be lovely if more people joined in.

Forget about Internet shopping. Put down your credit card and phone. Close the browser window that’s open to Amazon, eBay, and the like. Put on your boots and coat. Don’t go to the mall. Go, instead, for a walk. Head to the main street of your town or city, where glowing shop windows are decorated and lit up for the season.
