Re: “Feed the Birds

This story is dated 8 June 2000 but I just happened across it. I'd never know about the angst swirling around the bird seed business in Colorado Springs.

I've enjoyed birding as a hobby all my life and shopped at WBU on occasion back east but as with anything else I prefer small, locally-owned independent shops. I retired from the Navy and moved to Colorado Springs about six months after this story ran. My wife and I lived in Rustic Hills so we drove by TPIFTB a couple of times and just had to stop in. We became instant fans and loyal customers. Ron was very friendly and helpful. We never sensed he was in any way embattled. We now live in Buena Vista where we operate a small outdoors shop so we know how tough it is for the small business to survive in an increasingly centralized and corporate world.

Good luck Ron; hang in there and keep the faith.
