You may be tempted to purchase your pet's food and accessories at Pet Smart on Atlantic Avenue or place an order on Amazon, but that would hurt the family-owned pet shops in our neighborhood.
The owner of Beastly Bites at 155 Court Street near Pacific Street in Cobble Hill would like to remind you that shopping locally helps keep shop owners right here in the community. A sign in the store's window makes the argument that buying from this business, which has been in the community for over 40 years, will help a family father support his children instead of "helping a CEO buy a second summer home or a new yacht."
That is true. This would not be a real neighborhood without our locally owned shops. Let us make an effort to keep them in business.
What is your favorite local shop?
