Tacoma's Holiday Hobson's Choice For Shopping: Community Building or Anonymous Consumerism?

Today is December 21, four days before Christmas Eve.  Please enjoy your time with friends, family, take some time off if possible and....yes...engage in some Christmas (holiday?) shopping.

There has been a discussion lately whether local Tacomans should use the theme "Buy Local" or "Go Local."  I tend to think Go Local Tacoma is the best as it is focused on building community rather than a pro buying sales pitch.

Here are some images from their web site:

Community building.  Making contacts that matter rather than anonymous shopping.

Of course, there is always the more direct message that our local city of Tacoma cartoonist provides for us.
