Shopping locally

Angie Purwin

I am a single mom on a fixed income in Nevada County. I believe in shopping locally and do so whenever possible. Because I am limited in funds, I shop for the best prices on big ticket items.

The problem I have encountered more than once is the unwillingness of business owners in this town to match prices of the same items out of town. If I can save $50 or more on a purchase of the same item, I am going to drive down the hill to do it.

I would love to spend my hard-earned dollars here, but unfortunately some business owners don’t care whether I do or not.
