“Supportland: How local can you go?”

Here’s a new story with my name on it at NeighborhoodNotes.com“Supportland: How Local Can You Go?”

A Portland couple has started a tech company called Supportland that runs software to give local, independent businesses the option to run electronic rewards points systems. It was pretty interesting to learn about the Supportland system, but also about how business owners are shaping the meaning of the phrase “local economy.”

“I think New Seasons is as much a local business as I am. … Every business owner hopes that there is a great enough demand for their product [so] that opening more than one location proves beneficial to both [the business and consumer].” — Jessie Burke, owner, Posies Cafe, Northeast Portland
