Shopping locally more than a slogan

Editor:

I would like to address corporate responsibility and its local effect.

To be exact it is in regards to Bank of America and it hiring of contractors to do renovation and improvements at our local branch. The contract for the landscape improvements was let to a Reno company. There are numerous local contractors capable and are Bank of America customers. I asked why the insult to us local clients and businessmen and was told it was a corporate decision. How insulting to all of us in this community. And by the way, Raley's did the same thing and had the same response. When are we going to stop tolerating this treatment? Its our community and we are employees of and customers of these businesses. Speak up and speak out. We're a local business that does business with locals.
