I rely HEAVILY on Amazon for everything from “regular” purchases like vitamins, pet supplies, and non-perishable foods to random crap I regularly realize I need. I have been feeling worse and worse about this for a while. This past weekend a friend of mine opened a pet supply store that benefits a dog rescue and I decided this would be my first step - I know for a fact it is “better” to patronize my friend’s local, dog-saving business than Amazon. So I’m starting there.
I’m not interested in changing my dog’s regular food though, so I found a local pet store that carries it. Just ran over there to grab a bag (called this AM to make sure it was in stock) and learned that the store’s hours are 9AM - 6PM on weekdays. Strike one, real world! I am undeterred and I guess will get in there this weekend. But holy crap that’s inconvenient.
I am hoping to not have to give up online shopping entirely so would love some “better” online shopping suggestions. Specifically for vitamins, but I buy EVERYTHING on Amazon so need sources for lots of stuff.
