Letter: Joys of shopping local

To the editor,

It is always a pleasure for my husband and me to shop at Terry's Ace Hardware in downtown Rosemount.  We have found that it pays to shop local.  One gets excellent service as soon as we enter their doors.  Friendly associates help us. You recognize them because they become familiar faces. 

The store is neat and clean and well organized.  They often carry items you can't even find in the big chain stores. It is handy to have this location so close by when you need to run in and pick up something quickly. There is no waiting.

What do you think? Is it worthwhile to shop locally and support our local businesses?  It is to us.
