That's OK. We can differ on what is the definition of a local store. from the original article. "What brick-and-mortar stores make sense where you live?" That is what I meant. B&M near me "local" verses remote: long drive either for me or for my UPS driver. I am not "in love" with the buy local slogan. Those that push that, better never take money from out-of-towner's. My "local" stores are filled with out-of-state tags because we are 25 mi from the border. I live in a medium town (36,000) 1/3 of the workers drive in from 25 miles away in larger cities.

A rock store eventually closed down; they were taking too much for granite.
