Today is Shop Small Local Business Day, and its just a crock o' crap. It's just a way for people who pushed and shoved their way through Target, Best Buy, Walmart, and Toys-R-Us to feel less guilty about it.
Today Facebook is full of posts from people pleading that they care and are shopping local today. While yesterday, they were bragging up the steals at Kohl's with their 30% off card.
You don't need a special day to shop locally. Those businesses are open year round.
