More and more we seem to hear about online businesses taking over the market which leads us to ask the question: Will main street businesses survive? 

The brick-and-mortar shops and stores we know and love might seem to be falling wayside to the cyber world, but there’s an itch that shopping online just won’t scratch. There’s something about physically walking into a store that just can’t be replaced. Maybe it has a particular smell, the décor speaks to you, or simply getting to meet the fine folks that operate it all stimulate the senses and create an experience far superior than click, scroll, purchase. 

There’s always going to be some kind of competition out there, but figuring out what you do best and sticking to your guns in the face of adversity will help you to always overcome. After all, being small is your super power.
