Let’s keep local registers ringing

We seem to be bombarded with bad financial news recently and the doom and gloom is making tough for some folks to look forward to the holidays with a happy attitude.
One way we can all keep our stress down during this time of year is by avoiding the traffic and crowds off the Metroplex and doing our Christmas shopping here at home.
At the risk of sounding a little like a broken record, we feel we can’t stress enough the importance of supporting local businesses with our shopping dollars – especially this year. The list of benefits is long and when we keep local cash registers ringing during the holidays, it’s a win-win for everyone involved.
Not only can shoppers avoid the cost and headache of driving many miles from home to brave the crowds, but the local businesses use the money to provide local jobs, pay local taxes and support local charities. Our business community depends on support from area residents and that support is especially vital during this time of year.
We think shoppers will find another benefit from shopping locally in the quality of service they receive. These days, customer service is often hard to come by, but our local business community knows what it means to truly take care of their customers. When you do business with your friends and neighbors it’s only natural that you can expect a higher level of service.
We’re looking forward to a busy holiday season this year and we hope to see our readers making the smart choice to do much of their shopping right here at home. It will make everyone’s holidays a little brighter.
