The Perks of Shopping Locally

Christmas in the Store

Small Business Saturday is THIS Saturday! Come visit our store in Kidron and see our beautiful Christmas decorations and displays.

Editor’s Note: In celebration of Small Business Saturday (Nov. 24th), today we’re sharing with you a glimpse of the shops in our hometown (Kidron, Ohio). Enjoy!

I love needing to travel only a short distance to have a good time. Spending time and money at local shops in my area is great because it’s quick, fun, personable, and the people there know my name! I can walk into a bookstore just a five-minute drive from my apartment and they greet me personally when I walk in the door. I’m a regular at the fair-trade shop, coffee shop, and several restaurants in my neighborhood. It’s so nice to be known where I go, and to know the people that are benefiting from my purchases personally. It also feels great to know that I’m contributing to the growth and maintenance of their stores and helping to keep them going.

Or maybe it’s the first evening the temperate drops and you’re cuddled in a blanket sipping the newest holiday flavor of coffee or tea. Sounds heavenly right? Continue reading
