Buy Local



Cordova, TN; October 19, in the year of our Lord 2020 -- Family Friendly Gaming, the industry leader in covering the family friendly video games is continuing to be the voice of diversity in the gaming media, and media at large. I am getting really frustrated with all of those people telling me to buy local. I have been a long time supporter of buying things locally. I don’t have to wait for it to ship, and I assist the local economy. I help out my friends and neighbors in this area. I am on board with buying locally with every single opportunity I receive. Recently something happened that is making me question that idealogy. Do you know what happened? Do you want to know what happened? I am going to tell ya’ll either way.

The original Xbox One we purchased on launch day completely died. Peter uses that system to talk with his friends. Peter, Noah and myself went to seven local stores to purchase a new Xbox One video game system. Not one of those seven stores had one to purchase. This is not the first time we have had this exact problem. I have tried to buy other things locally and they were not for sale. Since they did not have the product for sale I went online and purchased it. The local Postal workers were happy for the work and business. In some cases Fedex and/or UPS delivered packages. The local economy was supported via those professions. If the local businesses do not carry the products I am trying to purchase I can’t give them money for them.

This can aggravate me to no end. There are all these people telling me to: “BUY LOCAL,” and when I try to I end up wasting time, gasoline, and exposing myself and my family to COVID-19. We lost a couple of hours going to those seven stores. That is just one instance of trying to buy something locally and coming up snake eyes. It has gotten worse in recent years. I have gone to stores the day a video game was released and tried to pick one up. They don’t have any in stock but I can purchase it online with no problem. I am getting sick and tired of wasting time and gasoline when local stores are not providing the products I want to purchase. Have you had any similar experiences?

I hope you have a wonderful rest of your day.

God bless,
Paul Bury
