Harsh Goenka’s Twitter feed is a goldmine of interesting and thought-provoking posts. He is an avid Twitter user and never misses an opportunity to share intriguing posts. The 64-year-old businessman shared a post on Twitter on June 2 in which he urged his fans and followers to go local and buy things from the local vendors.
Harsh Goenka shared a picture of a handwritten board in which are inscribed the following words, “When you buy from a small business, you’re not helping a CEO buy a third holiday home. You’re helping a little girl get dance lessons, a little boy his team jersey; moms and dads put food on the table. Shop local.”
“Makes so much sense, buy from your small vendor,” he shared the post with this caption.

Makes sense as long as small vendor is not cutting corners to make most profits out of small sales and jeopardizing safety and health of customer.

Good sir, but where does the local vendor gets it stuff from(unless ofcourse we are talking of vegs etc)!? I guess from a supplier of a corporate chain!? The ceo may still get his next holiday home!!?

Dmart offers me item X at rs. 50. Local vendor offers same at Rs. 70. Being a middle class person, I want to save Rs. 20. I don’t think about who is buying holiday home or dance lessons or team jersey or food.

I have sympathy for the small vendors but TBH you can’t compel consumers to buy things based on emotions..It’s the job of the govt to create level playing field and the rest job will be done by the laws of economics.
