Local business is what gives our community its personality. It is what sets us apart, keeps us vibrant, and flavors our everyday life. Sure, shopping on Amazon is easy but trust us, they will be fine if you choose to spend your dollars elsewhere.
This holiday season, more than ever before, we all need to come together to support local business. We’ve rounded up some of our local favorites that you can support this year. Your support could be the difference in these businesses keeping their doors open.
