The 'Boat is my new home town, so I did most of my shopping here in town and local shops, not walmart.
I only online shopped for what I could not find in town.
I went to the Front Range and did all of my shopping. There aren't enough choices here AND I could not afford to shop local.
Good question! I have always suspected internet shopping has found a comfortable home in Steamboat, and this confirms it!
Please remember this also means your delivery drivers (UPS, Fed Ex, DHL, and of course the Post Office) have to work extra hard during the holiday season - I saw UPS trucks out yesterday, on a Sunday! Please show them your appreciation.
We did about 90% local shopping. The only exception was some gift certificates for hard to shop for out of town relations. As far as prices, they are the same here as anywhere for the things we were shopping for.
If I can't buy it in Hayden, I WILL shop the internet and Steamboat Springs Schools WILL NOT get my tax dollars.
The lack of competition drives the business out of Steamboat. I too object paying the high sales tax and choose to shop elsewhere, where prices are competitive and my business is appreciated.
I love doing most of my shopping in town. It's a tradition that I send my family neat Steamboat/mountain gifts they can't get in New York. My boyfriend and I also walk downtown and drive around to other local shops like Ski Haus on Christmas Eve to do last minute gifts for eachother and stocking stuffers. It's actually not any more expensive than going online, running up more credit card debt, and hoping things come in time, and not to mention how much easier it is to return something in person than over the Internet. :)
I just choose not to shop at stores like Walmart who don't really give back to the community and don't give a rats arse about their employees
Not dealing with the rude beyond rude (yes they pay our wages) tourists during the run up to xmas has been an absolute pleasure. Thank you broadband!!
oh sbvor get off it
I hate evil huge corporations, sorry to be a buzzkill
I'd rather go to the Dollar store than give Walmart any money
We REALLY need a place to buy video games and movies other than Walmart.. anyone?
honestly I have nothing to say to you.. i'm NOT going to click any of your links and I really do not care about your "facts"
My beliefs are mine, and I'm not going to change them based on a few Internet links
Better selection and lower prices cause me to shop almost exclusively via the internet. "Steamboat" souvenirs and overpriced gee-gaws don't appeal to me.
