Man, someone is always complaining.
While I am sure we would all love to buy a hand carved, hand painted side table from a local artist, perhaps some folks don't have the funds to shell out for such luxuries. And don't get me wrong, I am all about buying local, being a local business owner myself. Not to mention, I know how these big box stores can affect the little guy. But, there must be alternatives.
I will also argue that since we are the university/college centre for the province, wouldn't it be nice to lift a financial burden off our students and provide them with affordable furnishings for their living quarters? I know that when I was going to Art School in Vancouver, I had IKEA to thank for keeping me off a sad mattress on the floor and using a mini fridge as a night stand.
