In the best interest of our users, we feel that it is important to clarify some points about the goal of this site and what we are trying to accomplish.  Many boards do not allow stores to promote themselves.  We don't want to do that.  Our goal is provide users a place to find out what the great stores in Connecticut and the surrounding area have to offer. 

What this site is...

  • a place for LFS owners to share information about their stores and any specials, discounts, events, etc. that may be of interest to our users
  • a place where a LFS can post as much information about their products as they want, (including images, new products, etc.) and not feel they are trying to promote themselves in an inappropriate manner like on other boards
  • a place for members to locate stores and find out more information about a store
  • a place for members to share information about a store, ie., specials, sales or exciting new shipments
  • a place to be nice and share experiences and facts

What this site is not...

  • a place to "bash" stores or their policies
  • a place to purposely try to hurt the business of a LFS
  • a place to argue about one store over another
  • a place to express opinions that are intended to be argumentative
  • a place to repeat yourself about a bad experience you had over and over again with the intent of making people unwilling to visit a particular store

Posts or threads that fall under this category will be deleted without notice by one of the board's moderators.  In addition, owners, employees or individuals with ties to a store should not post in other stores threads.  Please work to promote your store only.  Because the main purpose of this site is to promote our local stores, posts containing links to online stores can be removed at the discretion of our administrators/moderators.

This site will only be a success if we all play nice and follow the rules.
