Support your customers
When we were in Austin a couple of weekends ago, for a very much overdue long weekend away (without the kids). I noticed a nice way to help some neighborhood musicians.
There’s a shop called Farm to Market, which is a little grocery store on South Congress. As we were leaving the shop, I looked up and noticed a little box of CDs for sale. Each CD was by customers who shop at the store.
What a cool way to give back to your customers and to support local artists. If you own a store, why not give this a try? If you’re a musician, why not ask your local merchants if they’ll sell your CD?
I would love to see CDs like this in the stores I frequent in Nashville.
