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.

Becoming a union member saved my life and changed the direction of my life, being a single mom of two with no child support. I vigorously approve of unions.

My brief stint as a first line manager convinced me that workers need unions. I saw how upper management, in that setting, really wanted to treat workers.

I worked for a union and later belonged to a union. The downfall of America's middle class correlates directly with the downfall of unions, beginning at least 30 years ago.

Um, what was the question? Anyway, wouldn't you have had to have a job to be in a union? And wouldn't you have to be able to read to have a job?
