Should we give our patronage to a Shomer Shabbos store, rather than to a chain store, even though the Shomer Shabbos costs more?
Absolutely! Of course there is a limit too, but to some extent we must make it a point to patronize Shabbos observers. Whether they are shoe stores, whether they are fruits stores, any kind of business. Shomer Shabbos dentists, Shomer Shabbos physicians, Shomer Shabbos plumbers. A lot of people are careless in that.
It's our business to encourage our fellow Jews, and therefore even if it costs, it's your contribution.
Good Shabbos To All
