“No. I am from Lawrence and work downtown and think local businesses deserve my money more than online businesses that don’t even try.”

Sometimes the only way to buy American made is online, otherwise I try to help out local stores before I go to a national chain.

p>unionlabel.com is an awesome place to buy clothes.

Sorry, didn't mean to hit removal. Too close to your link.

You need to pay more attention to your receipt. Many companies are charging sales tax on online purchases. KS requires also requires companies who have a physical presence in the state to charges sales tax. Amazon, for example, has a distribution center in Coffeyville.

What ever it takes to avoid the sewer pit known as "downtown".

What's up with the Coventry ad over the "On the street?" It needs to go away.

Oh. I think my cuzin ate the fruitcake last year. Musta not been in on the joke of gifting it for the last 32 years. Or maybe he needed a boat anchor.

If a local vendor is competitive and I know they exist and have the product (meaning that the local vendor has a website with searchable inventory) and they're within a few percent of major online retailers in price, then sure, I'll shop locally. Or, if the local vendor offers a mix of products I want that are mostly unobtainable by other means, then of course I'll shop locally. If, however, the local vendor has a thin product offering for a 25% price premium, they can keep it.

The new wheels for the Sears canister vacuum should be here on 01/02/13. $6 shipping. Can't drive the F-250 for $6, much less KC.

I grew up with the Sears catalog, too. But I mostly just looked at the ladies modeling panties and bras.

I'd say 50% of the stuff I buy is online. Throw groceries out of the equation and it's probably 80%. Rivers are only place left to hunt hereabout; everything else is shelled over.
