Do you prefer mom and pop shops or retail chains?

Mom and pop stores are always twice as much and they never have what I'm looking for. They're always specialized in something that I never need like traffic cones or custom picture frames.

Honesty it's all chain stores in my neighborhood but if the option was there I'd go to the mom and pop.

It depends on what I'm looking for, but for everyday items where price is the main concern, probably a chain. When traveling as well, knowing what they have and where to find it is a plus if I need something unexpectedly. Local for specialty items.

I'll always try to support the small/local business owner if I can.

Helping them helps us all. I live in an area with a lot of local businesses in a historic district. Their rent is astronomical so they have to charge more. I'd rather support them than some huge chain that treats their staff and customers like cattle
