Bricks and Mortar
With this page I hope to start a building campaign: building your interest in patronizing brick and mortar stores.
Retail stores are the core of our towns and cities. Local brick and mortar businesses provide goods, services, jobs and gathering places for the rest of us, and the owners of these establishments shoulder the financial risk. I believe that we, as a society, should be mindful of keeping a balance between physical stores and virtual stores, lest we create ghost towns where communities once stood. Too expensive, you say? Look around you. Many stores offer discounts on special orders and best-selling items, not to mention clearance sales.
You can find an independent book store near you at: http://www.indiebound.org/indie-bookstore-finder
Here are the brick and mortar stores that kindly carry my books. I hope you’ll treat yourself to a real-time, in person shopping experience the next time you pass their way.
