I recently had the need to purchase some lumber for a project at home. On my lunch break I was heading to Lowes to pick up the needed 2x4’s. As I left the office and headed East, it hit me like a ton of bricks, “Why in the world am I driving to Suffolk when everything I need is just across the street?” Not only did Windsor Hardware have the supplies I needed, they were actually cheaper, and I didn’t have to burn fuel to get to Suffolk and back. How many times have you left Windsor to buy something that was, in fact, available right here in Town? Between our hardware store, pharmacy, grocery store, farmer’s supply store, and other businesses, there are very few things that you can’t get here in Town. By the time you factor in fuel and your valuable time, you are often saving yourself money by shopping in Town. Every dollar you spend in Town helps your neighbors and local businesses. I want to challenge each of you to stop and think before you leave Town to buy something. Ask yourself, “Can I get that here?” If the answer is yes, then stay in Town and support your local businesses.
