Couldn't agree with you more, I'd take a good, small shop that's closed on Mondays over any big corporate shop even if they were open 24/7.The bigger shops in the bigger towns and cities tend to be open longer hours. I'd rather develop a good relationship with one of the smaller dealers in a small town.
Motorcycle purchases aren't the impulse buys they were a couple of decades ago. These are very expensive items that require a lot of thought and planning before the purchase. Most riders can work around the Monday-off schedule.
I like to deal with folks who ride the bikes they sell. If they have to work seven days per week, they don't get much riding done.
agreed, I dont mind spending the extra couple bucks at a local establishment because the dollars stay with the local economy instead of being shipped out to some offshore profit center as most corps are set up this way now...Couldn't agree with you more, I'd take a good, small shop that's closed on Mondays over any big corporate shop even if they were open 24/7.
I really feel the same way about just about all stores and restaurants and would rather support my local retailers even if I have to pay a little more than what a Walmart or Target would charge.
