This Christmas season, we are challenging you to look over your shopping list and consider buying some of your gifts from a small local business! Think gift certificates and stocking stuffers too!!

Locally purchased gifts are not only more unique and heartfelt, they support the local families who own these businesses, it helps keep their business doors open, and the sales tax revenue stays in our local community!

Did you know?...Local business generates 70% more local economic activity per square foot than big box retail stores?! That is HUGE!!
