Do you do most of your shopping locally or out of the county? Please explain why either way.

I do most of my shopping locally.  If I can buy it in Van Zandt County, I buy it here.  I believe in supporting our county first.  Sandy Hilliard, Canton

Yes, I do most of my shopping locally.  I like to physically examine the goods I wish to buy. I hate to return ANYTHING.  It is a real hassle so I try to avoid it as much as possible. LeAnn Sellers, Van

The majority of my spending is done locally. I enjoy being able to stay close to home.  I am willing to pay a little more to not have to drive. Misty Kimbrough, Wills Point

Outside for the most part. I live in Smith County and it's just more convenient. Bobby Skeeters, Van

I try to shop local when possible, we just don't have everything we need close to home. I'm always looking for the best bargain. Janna Ramsey, Wills Point

I shop locally for groceries and gas all the time because of the convenience.  I split my retail shopping between Wills Point and Tyler most of the time depending on what I am shopping for. Dana Clair, Wills Point
