A LESSON I NEED TO LEARN
Far be it from me to tell anyone where to shop. But many of us are complaining about NYC and other cities losing their flavor--mom & pop stores provide that flavor. And every time one closes, a Subway, Duane Reade, large bank or Starbucks opens. Making NYC more like everywhere else in the country. Presumably, we pay a fortune to live in small apartments because NYC is so unique. We can help keep it unique by supporting less chains. When you support the a mom & pop business, you support the 99%.
