Shopping Local Means Quality Service

By Staff | Mar 23, 2020

To the Editor,

I have always been supportive of our Emmetsburg merchants and preferred to shop at home. Today, I had an experience that definitely proved that point.

I was looking for an upholstery item and went to Swanson Hardware. A clerk assisted me for some time but to no avail so contacted another clerk and he too was unable to find it and he too spent a long time looking. He then called their store in another town and they had it and I was told it would be in Emmetsburg the next morning.

This item was under $10 but that did not matter; they wanted to help me.

Please remember to SHOP AT HOME where merchants want to serve us in every way. We are so fortunate to have people who care.
