As often as I can, I try to give local businesses my money. Kind of hard to do with Shrum because they have been closed the three times I've tried to stop by during their hours.
There seems to be a Lawrence small business disease characterized by posting regular hours, having an open sign displayed, but being locked up and empty. It's a common theme in this town.
I don't want to be too hard on them because this town needs a non-sleazy place to buy hunting and shooting supplies, but I'm losing patience.
