The trend that is Shop Local (Shop Locally for the grammar purists!) has taken off with the advent of Covid-19.  Shop local is a way to help maintain the vibrancy of where you live and keeping local employtment figures healthy.  Of course, not every item you wish to buy is available in your local town, and that's where the internet is helpful. Online shopping with an independent business has similar benefits to the Shop Local idea.
