You really do vote with your dollars, both for the product and the way they do business, provide local jobs, etc.. I may be wrong, but it seems the conversation has gone toward someone taking the risk and doing whatever it takes to raise the capital to start this venture being somehow wrong and greedy for actually wanting/hoping to make a profit. You cant really expect quality vegan products from a small local store to be available at walmart prices. Of course you can choose not to shop there, but we seem to have gone from "here is a cool new shop to check out" to profit = evil.

Okay, not trying to be argumentative, but... when they have to pay overhead (day & night, there or not) and utilities, insurance, business licenses, etc. as a brick & mortar store, do you think they will still be the same price?
