Get Local

But seriously...when it comes to shopping... The East Village Community Coalition has released the 3rd edition of its "Get Local" Shopping Guide. As the EVCC notes:

Remember, when you choose locally over mega-chains, you:

-Create local jobs with fair living wages

-Choose creativity and personality over uniformity

-Keep more money in the community

-Provide economic activity and stability

-Sustain small business owners who strengthen the local economy

-Defend our neighborhood's identity

-Fight the lie that low prices at chain stores make up for the loss of local business ownership
