Keep your dollars local this holiday season!
Did you know that the months of November and December account for 40% of annual revenue for most US retail stores?
Shopping locally keeps your money in the local economy. It’s better for the environment and it’s better for you. Not only that, purchasing your gifts locally gives you the opportunity to support local artisans and small business owners while finding unique and often one-of-a-kind gifts for those special people on your shopping list. Not to mention, the local service perks are above and beyond what you’ll find at most retail stores!
Plan to shop local on Small Business Saturday (Saturday, November 29th) and throughout the holiday season. Bonus: You can park somewhere central and walk to many of these locations!
