I've also got a store that is local.   Last time I was
there I picked up an application and was going to fill
it out until I found out the company I work for has an
account there.  I just give them that name.  I suppose
somewhere the items show up on the companys account,
but since I paid for them myself they aren't going to
get charged anything.  I don't know if the company
gets a bonus for buying a certain quantity/value of
items but it should help them out.
