I applaud your championing of the local economy in the Free Press on January 2, but it is a shame that you do not take every opportunity to support businesses within your circulation area.

I was surprised to see that in the Best Books for Gardeners feature, you suggest an internet retailer as purchase tool, rather than local bookshops.

EDITOR’S NOTE: Thanks for your letter, Richard. We always try to support local businesses. In this case, however, I agree we missed an opportunity. Thanks for pointing it out.
