    Many mega-retail operations are co-opting the localism label in an effort to burnish their brands and increase sales. As an authentically local and independent business, your store fuels the local economy and strengthens the community far more than any chain. But your community may need to be reminded of this. Booksellers who are experts at keeping the community informed of their businesses’ contributions will provide tips and best practices to help you put your store in the spotlight and keep it there.
