Do it Best CEO Bob Taylor promoted the virtues of the local independent hardware and lumber and building materials stores in his recent blog that appeared on Independent We Stand.
Among them: Local knowledge; product assortment and experience.
He added: “Money spent with your local independent store stays local and is reinvested into the community.”
Independent We Stand is a website that describes itself as a “movement of locally owned businesses and people across the country dedicated to educating their communities about the importance -- and strong economic benefits -- of buying local.”
The site is sponsored by Stihl and Chrysler Group.
