Shop locally - save your town

There has been a conference here in Australia talking about how to save small towns. This shot from Mark of the general store at Bundarra, a small town between Armidale and Inverell, captures one message rather well, Shop (and act) locally and save your town. Bundarra

Jim, the strongest incentive I ever had to shop locally was in the bad old days(in the 1970s)when we lived under the threat of petrol rationing. Our local service station in Macquarie (a Canberra suburb) had a policy of rewarding regular customers.

I had forgotten that, the petrol issue, Winton.
