Why Care about Independent, Locally Owned Businesses? - Institute for Local Self-Reliance

Love this article from Institute for Local Self-Reliance - it takes intention to shop local during these times, but it pays tenfold in benefits for the local community.

Locally owned businesses play a central role in healthy communities and are among the best engines that cities and towns have for advancing economic opportunity and building resilient places. Here, we outline five important reasons for local officials to support independent businesses, based on a gr...

😊 We have the best neighbors - thanks Baked by Yael for the shout-out and support (and the AMAZING cake pops- if you haven't had them, be sure to visit her shop in Woodley Park!).

We thought the "Dog Days of Summer" was a good time to reflect on one of our most important core values: "Be Nice". On good days, being nice might come naturally; but when you're feeling down, hot, tired, or maybe just under the weather, it's not always easy to be nice to others. Don't forget to show kindness to friends and family even when it might take a little extra effort- why not start by invite a friend or neighbor to work with you on these summer camp activities?

Not everyone loves an underdog, but sometimes you’re better off rooting for the one running behind the pack. For one D.C.

This week's summer camp gives little ones a chance to learn one of the most important core values at A Few Cool Hardware Stores: communicate respectfully. These activities are designed to teach kids how to pause and listen to the world around them through fun, engaging bird themed activities.

Create a colorful birding scene, make a bird feeder using supplies around the house, and go on a "bird scavenger hunt" using the sights and sounds in the neighborhood. We hope you enjoy🐦

Tomatoes: To Prune or Not to Prune

The question of the hour for tomato growers - to prune, or not to prune? Here's what our vendor Botanical Interests Seed Packets has to say about it: https://www.botanicalinterests.com/product/tomatoes-prune

I hear these questions every year: Should I prune my tomatoes ? When? How do I do it? First things first, only indeterminate-type tomatoes should be pruned. Because indeterminate plants continue to grow and produce tomatoes throughout the season, you can prune their side shoots (also known as sucker...

I think this product would sell well in your store. You can buy them wholesale on my site at www.tubeanew.com
Hi- as a customer, I am concerned about management's efforts to derail a unionization drive by your employees. I and many others in the community shop union when we can, and specifically avoid any establishment that is hostile to union organizing by their employees. As such, I urge you to reconsider your stance. No good employer needs to fear negotiating with their employees on equal footing.
Thanks so much for inviting Community Forklift to your Ladies' Night event! We had a blast making upcycled windchimes with your customers, and letting them know how to donate home improvement leftovers to our nonprofit, of course ;) Also, we are so grateful to Ace for donating beautiful supplies to us on a regular basis - so it was AWESOME to meet some of your employees and thank them in person! Y'all have been such a wonderful donor and supporter of the 'Lift over the years.
