Grab a friend, family member or coworker and enjoy some of the area’s most beloved establishments! The Chamber would like to remind our community how important it is to shop locally this holiday season. By shopping locally, you are making an investment in your community and helping to shape its unique character and personality. Visiting local businesses keeps more money in the local economy, strengthens local jobs, helps the environment and encourages community all while supporting your friends and neighbors. More details will be shared on our website and Facebook page, so stay tuned!
