RedState Readers Stimulate the Economy
Congratulations RedState readers.
We have supported a small business, made a statement, and attracted the attention of the Wall Street Journal.
Since last Wednesday morning, Ron’s Home & Hardware has received roughly 240 orders for five-pound bags of rock salt. While buyers were scattered around the country, each requested the same delivery address in Portland, Maine – one of six state offices for U.S. Republican Sen. Olympia Snowe.
John M. Thieling, co-founder of the Indianapolis-based company, says an employee turned to the Web for an explanation and found a blog entry on RedState.com urging readers to order bags of rock salt from Amazon.com and mail them to the senator’s office. Ron’s Home & Hardware sells rock salt through Amazon.
Very well done!
