CORNING, NY – While venturing throughout town during the final warmer months of the year, a local Corning man reportedly loves supporting local businesses by walking in them and buying nothing.
The report comes after, Eli Montie, 43, loves to go into random stores to look around without any intention of buying something. Montie has been venturing into small businesses and not buying anything from them for years.
“I love going into these businesses and making them smile with my presence, but no, I have no need to buy anything from these places. Me just walking in them is enough of a support,” said Montie.
“I don’t get why he always comes in here acting all high and mighty like he’s helping any us in any way. He comes in and doesn’t buy anything, plus, he does it almost every day,” said Antique Store Owner Almendra Steel.
