RENEW YOUR COMMITMENT …
Weekly, we dedicate this space to share with you news tidbits about our local businesses. Today, as you read through this column, pause for a moment to consider just what it takes for these fine businesses to survive in this county, especially given our current financial crisis. Simply said: We need them and they need us. For that to truly work, businesses have to provide consistently good service and selection at a fair price. In turn, we have to do the shopping.
Are all the players — merchants and shoppers — doing their part? My guess, pretty much across the board is no, at least not consistently. So isn’t this the perfect time to renew our commitment to our fine community, to help our community, to help ourselves? You know the old adage, “What goes around, comes around!” How true is that when it comes to supporting our students and their extracurricular activities, our clubs and local organizations, volunteer firefighters and even our local hospitals and health care?
So here’s the challenge:
Forget what happened yesterday. Dismiss any prior, perhaps biased, perceptions you might be hanging on to. If someone shared with you what he or she thought was a bad experience at a local store, don’t give it much merit. Instead, go find out for yourself.
If, Mr. or Mrs. Merchant, you’ve become apathetic because something you’ve tried in the past failed to meet your expectations, let it go and try it again. Better yet, try something new and different. If you don’t try to make your businesses, be sure you also show them how much you value their businesses by doing your part to provide the best possible customer service with a good selection at fair prices.
