Shopping local can be frustrating

We have had great experiences shopping in Georgetown, also some unfortunate experiences. We try to shop local and are willing to pay a bit more however…
Appliance store— We gave the associate our names, item numbers and after three visits and no calls or price, ordered from Sears.
Car— After three visits to our local dealer, neither the manager nor salesperson appeared familiar with the local newspaper advertisement and offered no breakdown on price. The cost did not appear to be discounted by the incentives. Frustrated, we contacted the Milton dealer, who provided a price breakdown with incentives in five minutes at $10,000 cheaper.
Landscaping— The salesman took down our name and promised a contractor would call. After a week, the salesman called, lost the request and promised another call, which never came. From Mississauga, within a few days work was completed.
Despite this we continue to try first to shop local. We thought perhaps these companies would recognize themselves and not take customers for granted. We still love Georgetown as a place to live.There are so many great, reputable places, like Glen Valley Restoration, Appleby, Sears, Hassell’s Auto, Goodyear, Pro-lube, too many to list.
