I should have worded it differently. I'm all for shopping at Kohl's and Target (probably my favorite place to shop), but I was talking about Lemont's small businesses—the ones that can really benefit from local shoppers. Thanks for the suggestions!

I'm with Amanda on this...SHOP SMALL! as in our local small businesses. Too many have closed their doors recently.
