I'm dreaming of a local Christmas....Why leave town to shop?
Money spent locally is money invested locally.
What I think keeps many people from spending locally is time. Small stores and local businesses may not be open 24/7 (nor should they be), but in today's world it seems that is the norm and what we've come to expect perhaps. Plan ahead so you have plenty of time before the holidays.
Why not choose to step away from the corporate greed found in the big box stores? Support independent businesses instead.
Empty towns are depressing. Keep them thriving and full of holiday cheer.
Spending locally is investing locally.
