I had a few errands to run today including a stop at the grocery store for the last items needed for Thanksgiving. I had seen people on Facebook complaining about how busy it was at Walmart. I never shop there but I wasn’t sure what it would be like at the grocery store where I do shop here in town. I had originally planned to do the last of my Thanksgiving shopping over the weekend but that never happened. I needn’t have worried, though. I was in and out of the store in about 20 minutes without the least bit of unpleasantness.
Today I am thankful for small, locally-owned businesses.
