Editorial: Shop locally
Placeholder Image
The holidays are nearly upon us, bringing with them all the joy -- and stress -- of the season. As always, we suggest at least one method of alleviating holiday stress and that is, if you’re going to do a lot of shopping, try to do it locally. Without getting too mired in the rampant commercialism of the holidays, we believe that shopping locally is a good thing, something that shows appreciation not only for friends and neighbors who own small businesses, but ultimately benefits the entire community by keeping our dollars here in our community.
