This year, more than ever, we'd like you to try and think local first when doing your holiday shopping. We're not asking you to delete your Amazon account or boycott city malls for the rest of your life. We're just asking that you take a bit of time, if you have it, to discover and explore what our local gems have to offer. We think you'll be pleasantly surprised at what you find!
Some additional, free ways you can help our local businesses:
- give them positive reviews on Google, Facebook and wherever else they are found online;
- share their pages and posts on your social media feeds
