America was built on Mom and Pop stores. In fact, most of the world was built on Mom and Pop stores. Those stores today that have not been destroyed because of the pandemic or the internet are on life support struggling to stay in business against the mega stores. Most people don’t care so long as they can get what they want but when the Mom and Pop stores disappear, many of those choices we have will go along with them. Support your local stores before it’s too late.
How to celebrate – Shop local Mom and Pop stores where you can. Check for Mom and Pop owned internet stores. Open your own Mom and Pop store.
