Maritime Farms Marketing Bullsht

Maritime Farms: Winner of the First Ever M3R Marketing Bullshit Award.

Keeping my business local? It’s a convenience store for god’s sake! What else am I gong to do? Drive to Bangor to pick up a hot coffee? Order my gasoline on Amazon?

Shopping locally is a good thing. But don’t think that bullshit is an acceptable substitute for a sincere thanks for my business.
