Re: “Black Friday

Your question raises a point that is often the source of confusion for folks wishing to support their local economies as much as possible: What is 'local'? Local is, really, too vague. What's important is to shop 'independent,' and that does not include franchises like Subway or McDonald's, whose headquarters are not local and whom are unable to make virtually any independent decisions. If Porter Street has less than six outlets and is headquartered locally, it might qualify as independent for us (at HumIBA). We'd have to look more closely (there's always gray area). As for Ace Hardwares, they're buying cooperatives, not franchises, so they qualify as independent. They have a lot of independence in terms of how they run their business (Pierson's sells Ace, as well as other brands, for example). Do-It-Best I'm guessing would be similar to Ace, but I don't know for sure. Feel free to write me at scott 'at' if you have any more questions.
