Quality is integral to my valuation and is non-existent at a Big Box, particularly in Chinese products at Great Wall Mart.
My grocery has been operated by the same family for about 110 years. A stocking clerk is the 85 y.o. owner that still works two 8 hour days when the truck arrives. She sits in the pew behind at Church.
Our chain associated hardware (carries only shotgun and .22 ammo) is run by a nut that thinks his captive market owes his family new cars and Florida residences. I'll bear his price for my convenience when an urgent need arises. Otherwise I'll get it on-line.
Supporting my community is very important in resisting BB stores.
