The monthly column “Going Loco Trying to Find This Local!” was created an effort to shed some light on how to further support the local movement. In this column, we examine the challenges in finding particular items at locally-owned and independent businesses. We understand that we may not have hit every possible option with our recommendations, so if you know where you can get our monthly item(s) locally, please share your knowledge with us in the comments section!
