Sometimes it cost slightly more to buy something locally than it does to order it through the internet. "There are other factors that should influence your purchasing decisions," says Courtney Hornsby, President of the West Monroe West Ouachita Chamber of Commerce. She say often paying just a little more helps keep local employees working and supports area families and businesses.  

Policy and a Pint: Small Business Value in a Dot Com World will discuss how the "Shop Local" movement is gaining ground in the era of large internet retailers.
