Why Shop Mikes?
It's really easy. Jeff Bezos of Amazon is now worth a 161 billion dollars! Isn't that crazy enough? Yet he still continues to grow his wealth while many mom and pop stores are having to go out of business. Here at Shop Mikes, I try to promote those mom & pop stores to help local economies and families across the country. I know it is so easy to use Amazon, I use it myself. I do comparison pricing through Amazon, and only if I can't find the product I want or need through the stores here at Shop Mikes, then I will purchase through Amazon. I know it is so easy to use Amazon, but think of all the local stores in your part of the country going out business because they can't keep up with the Billionaire Bezos. The guy has a solid business plan and the money to make it work. But in his wake, he is wiping out many of the stores and products that made this country great.
I know that you can just type in what you want and 150 items of that sort will appear, but is that item you choose really what you were looking for? I have made that mistake a few times on Amazon. Looked at the item, scrolled through the choices and picked one. However, when the item arrived, it was not what I was really wanting. It was close, but not the quality I was hoping for. That's not Bezos's fault, it's the fault of the numerous stores on the Amazon network. I have had to learn the word patience again, in this I got to have it now world we live in. But as the saying goes, good things come to those who wait. And that is why I have not been using Amazon, because I choose quality over quantity.
You have probably never heard of many of the stores here at Shop Mikes, but they are all hard working business people who have families too. It’s not easy to be able to compete with Amazon, but they don’t have a choice. Their livelihood is at stake. So why don’t you give the stores at Shop Mikes a chance and help them feed their families, I know Bezos won’t be starving anytime soon.
