You've heard it from us before: shop local.
From the Tampa Independent Business Alliance to my own search for some locally-bought toilet paper, Creative Loafing has championed the cause of buying from your mom-and-pops and avoiding Walmart at all costs.
Now, you have another website to help you shop responsibly: Localshops1.com. (Not sure what the "1" is for.)
A creation of St. Pete resident Ester Venouziou, the Local Shopper website has listings for seven Florida counties. There's already about 400 businesses listed on the site.
Check it out here.
