I really prefer to buy locally, and do look, but if I can't get it locally, I'll get it online. Unfortunately, if local businesses' inventory isn't available online, its hard to know what they have.

I shop both but, as we have no toy stores in town and no decent electronics stores, I find the bulk of my Christmas gifts online.

Christmas shopping used to be a weeks-long stress fest. Now I get it done in a day. I do worry about the carbon footprint of all that shipping though.

I recall the fun days of yore of going to an indoor mall, where you are warm w/o a coat, and window shopping, but there are no indoor malls here in Bend. I will shop online for sure.

I live a distance from Bend & Redmond so in-store isn't always convenient. 95% of my shopping is online, especially for Christmas. I'd only go in-store if I wasn't sure what I was looking at.

Lucky to live in an urban area now with plenty of great boutique retailers. Keeping Christmas spending local does a lot for the community. And if it’s available here I feel obligated to by it here.

I like to support my local stores. Besides that how can I buy my big meal deals at Food4Less and donate to Shepherd's house + Bethlehem Inn. I also buy 50 lb of spuds + 25 lb of onions give to each.

Our local businesses need our support all year long, the Holiday season the most. Too many stores are closing because of many people buying online. I like to see the product for myself when I buy ii.

System Development Charges (SDC) are obviously way too low to offset the impacts of growth. Otherwise, we would not need continuous bonds for roads, schools, library, etc. to keep up with this growth.

The roads are falling apart money would be better spent on repairs than roundabouts with expensive artwork

it is always hard to anticipate future growth. However, Bend has a pro growth policy and Visit Bend which actively tries to get everyone to move here. It should come as no surprise that transportation lags far behind the aggressive marketing of this town.
