Frank Posted June 6, 2009 Share Posted June 6, 2009 I heard some mind staggering news on the radio that really made me think... That one out of every (4) specialty store will close in these hard times! DOH! What does that mean to us hobbiest??? One or two of our LFS's will close! (scary) If that happens we could lose opportunities for getting good deals on our items. Those are the facts...So...the question is...how can we prevent this? My opinion: SUPPORT YOUR LFS! (fish) More than ever they need our support to keep business going. By shopping at your LFS (and not on the internet) for your items (that you have to buy anyway in some cases) we keep the $$$ right here in "our" stores. The more stores to shop from the easier it is for us to get better pricing...that is ALWAYS a good thing!(yahoo) I know times are tough and people have tightened their wallets, but there are items that if you are going to have a tank then there are things you are going to HAVE to buy. I’m not asking you to buy things you wouldn’t usually get but, things that you need. I myself I would rather buy my items at the LFS and pay a little more (not a lot more) but a little more and show my support. In most cases the end result is to my benefit...as in since I am a repeat customer they are more apt to offer deals on corals or other items. Ok...so now I may be rambling....(backtotopic)but you get the idea. I would hate to see us lose some of the great stores we have. Support your local fish store!(cheer) 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
