Do you shop local or go "big box?"

I like to go to smaller, locally owned stores to find unique gifts.

  • Big Box, typically. It's a lot cheaper, at least out here.

  • A mix of the two. I try to support local companies as much as I can, but for somethings, they just can't compete. We go to the farmer's market often, and shop at local grocery stores and such.

  • I will buy stuff wherever I can find it the cheapest. I'm poor. If local businesses had stuff cheaper, I'd shop there. but usually they don't.

  • I go big box because i only buy for kids. might as well save money while i am doing it.

  • I buy local when I can afford it. But typically I buy either bb or second hand.

  • It depends on what I'm buying.
