It pays to shop at home

To the Editor:

There are many reasons to buy locally and I have an example that is really impressive.

We needed a new mattress so I stopped by Lin Furniture — it was 11:30 a.m. Linda was at the desk, I told her what I needed, looked at different mattresses and chose the model I wanted, arranged delivery and pick-up of the old one, paid for it, then went home to meet Lin’s delivery men.

They arrived at 12:05 p.m., took out the old mattress, installed new one and left at 12:20 p.m. It took 40 minutes for the entire transaction — if that’s not an impressive purchase, I don’t know what is. — Betty Pasela, Little Falls
