Yes ... this is a list of items you can buy from Amazon with the intent to improve your time shopping locally. Congratulations. You have stumbled upon the dumbest thing on the internet. Now it's up to you on whether or not you should share this article to incite anger or laughter ... or to simply back out now and not feed into this insanity.

Why am I writing this? Maybe because I'm not exactly right in the head. I just think it's good to be 100% prepared when going into any situation. That includes heading downtown and supporting local businesses.
If you have anxiety about going into the public and seeing your neighbors helping the local economy, you're going to want to have the right gear. In the end, shopping locally IS important for your town. Let's just let this article be an exercise in irony. If you end up buying anything from this, then that works out for my company so ... help me help you.

BOOM! Item #1 is orthotic foot pad things. The ones in this link are for dudes over 200lbs, but you can get normal orthotics here.

Why? Because shopping local means physically walking around. It's good for you, but you don't want to put unnecessary strain on them little piggies. The more you can walk, the more you can shop ...local.

Some Sunglasses, I dunno

Stores sometimes close. When they do, it's mostly when the sun isn't out. Using that logic you can determine that the Sun IS out when stores are open.
