Tattered & Twisted Lightning Round!

Celebrate Your Independence! We're running a contest on Facebook asking you (our fans and customers) tell us why you support locally-owned, independent businesses, and you'll be entered into a random drawing to win one of two Tattered & Twisted prize packages ($25.00 gift certificates to both businesses). All entries must be received by midnight on Monday, July 5. Winners will be drawn and announced on Tuesday, July 6. (click here to visit the Facebook thread and enter to win!)

Here are some of our favorite entries so far:

Kathleen Schmidt:
"Because what's better than Twist & Shout and Tattered Cover being next door to one another? :D"

J. Michael Carr:
"Locally owned businesses are my friends, neighbors as well as the backbone of what makes a community a community."

Jason Gorbett:
"Cause you rock! You've got more, better books, CD's, vinyl, videos, and posters than any chain could possibly even conceive of. You're real."

April Green:
"It's all about the search, flipping through the racks, oohing & ahhing over the artwork of an LP/CD. There's also nothing like standing in a record store talking music w/ other music geeks. And then there's the going home & listening to my newly purchased treasures while I finish reading the liner notes. Need I say more?!"

Stacy Lynch:
"Locally owned and independent businesses are vital to keeping community together. Sure you can sometimes get some good deals at chain stores, but when was the last time you walked into one and they knew your name, your favorite things, etc? Locals helping locals is what we need more of - it keeps business going."

Sheila McClune:
"Shopping at locally owned independent businesses is just more fun. Tattered Cover and Twist & Shout have been among my favorite places to shop for years, because when you walk in the door, you know it doesn't look like a thousand other stores across the country. And you know you're going to find things that you just wouldn't find at one of those cookie-cutter stores. Plus the staff are always friendly and helpful and not too busy to take a few minutes to chat."
