Mike: Bookseller #11: The elevator pitch  

Thankfully, I don't have to pitch a membership card with every transaction at HB's.  The most comparable thing I talk about at work is trying to convince people to spend their money locally instead of using our store as a showroom and ordering off Amazon.  When a book is purchased from an independent bookstore, it helps employ your neighbors and brings tax revenue to the city and the state, which in turn is spent on things like roads and schools.  Trust me, I get the convenience of shopping online, but if you like having a physical bookshop to visit make sure you throw them some cash once in a while to keep the doors open.
