There are many reasons why you benefit from supporting your local quilt shop, and all small local businesses for that matter. Locally owned businesses:

1) Invest in their community. Big Box stores are only interested in their investors.
2) Keep the money in the local community, not in the hands of their corporate personnel.
3) Create more jobs for local people.
4) Provide better service (I'll get back to this point shortly).
5) Provide innovation and creativity for their customers.

These are only a few of the reasons for supporting your local quilt shops. I recently had first-hand experience with a Big Box store in Pensacola. I needed drapery weight fabric for a window treatment and the store had Waverly fabric on sale. My hubby and I drove over and he waited in the vehicle as I proceeded to locate a suitable fabric. Went to the service desk to ask if someone could help me retrieve the roll of fabric—was told to take a number and get in line. After 20 minutes my number was called, and I said I needed help to get the fabric—was told to get it myself and bring it to the service desk. Went and got the hubby to help me lift the roll off the rack, got another number and waited another 30 minutes for my number to be called. Hubby said this was like going to get your car serviced and having them hand you a can of oil and tell you to do it yourself, and asked why in the world I would spend my money to get treated this rudely.

If we don't spend our money with our local businesses they won't be there in the future and all we will have is nationally owned stores that provide poor quality merchandise and treat us badly while we give them our hard earned cash.
