Consider shopping locally

To the Editor:

As we turn the calendar to November and we realize the holidays are among us, we need to stop and think before we go to the big malls and the internet to do our shopping. Are these the businesses that are helping our community?

As a business manager, I get hit daily for donations and putting signs on the door. Do they ask the big malls or the internet to help? NO! They ask their businesses from the community!

Before you spend your money, please consider helping your local community businesses because they help make the town better. When the community businesses thrive, the community thrives! Remember to shop locally!
