Shop Small, My Friends, on May 7

Here’s something that’s near and dear to our hearts: Shopping local, and shopping small.

This Saturday, May 7 is Shop Lompoc Shop Small Saturday. It’s a day to focus on the locally-owned businesses that are busting their hump to revitalize the economic and social life of our community.

We’re your neighbors, we’re your family, we’re your classmates and coworkers. Give us a chance before you go to Walmart. We’re working hard to make a better town and a better world. And we have quality stuff you can’t find anywhere else.

Years ago, our hometown had a thriving local economy based around, among other things, a core of small locally-owned businesses. Downtown storefronts were full, and everything you needed was available in town, and you had a few choices of where to shop. Necessities like hardware and lumber, to appliances and sporting goods were all sold by mom-and-pop businesses, and they backed up their products. The butchers, the grocers, they were experts, because it was what they did. They weren’t just working for a big corporation. They owned the place. They made stuff, and fixed stuff. With pride.

Let’s face it, we all go to a big-box store once in a while. But each time you give a small local business a chance, you help keep money in your town, and that helps build community, and it helps pay for better schools, parks, police, and fire departments.

So vote with your wallet: Shop Lompoc, Shop Small Saturday and every day!
