Another Reason to Shop Small

I was reading the Boston Globe on Saturday and one of the front page articles was about how many people have been affected by data breaches in the last year.  More than 1.3 million (yes million!) people had their personal information stolen through data breaches.  But here's the great deal if you shop at a small bricks and mortar shop like mine.  Nothing can ever be stolen!  The only customer information we keep on our computers is your name, address, phone number and email---all of which are readily available on line to anyone.  We don't have social security numbers, credit card numbers, passwords or anything like that.  If you phone in an order and we take a credit card number from you it never goes into the computer.  It gets used and shredded promptly. 
We also only have one credit card terminal and it's kept behind my cases so no one could possibly install a skimmer on it. 

So just in case you were needing another reason to shop at a small shop like mine, today this seems to be one of the best ones!
