Thank you so much for starting this group.... I don't know anyone
who hasn't complained about all the jewelry and trinket stores....
good to see someone doing something about it. I will definitely
sign that petition. A friend of mine had a great idea - to put
up a flag - or some type of symbol - in front of each business/store
that is locally owned; that way people who choose to shop with
the locals will know where they are - including the locals who
live here. Believe me, when we have guests in Ketchikan we
refer them only to the stores that we know are local but we may
be missing some of them. Again, thanks for caring enough to
do something about the problem.
