Purely Local

Congratulations to my friend Dennis Schmidt on the milestone 40th anniversary of his fine store [“Schmidt’s To Celebrate 40 Years In Business In March,” 27east.com, February 21].

No other place in Southampton so well defines our small community.

Of course it’s best place to stop for the freshest produce, delicious take-out lunch, the local paper, and coffee — but, most of all, I look forward to my quick chats with Dennis for local news. He never disappoints.

In our world order of e-commerce, dull influencers and the steady arrival of small cardboard boxes, a visit to Schmidt’s is a much needed reminder as to why I moved out here in the first place.
