For the best value and service, shop locally

Please remember to support you independently owned small businesses during the holiday season (and the rest of the year, too!). These businesses are owned and operated by your neighbors and your friends.

A large portion of the money you spend locally stays in our community. The sales tax you pay supports your schools, police, fire departments, and other services. The best part is that if you have a problem you can always ask to speak to the owner: Try that at one of the big boxes.

Odds are the owner is the one helping you, and he or she will go out of the way to provide value and service.

Without you and your patronage, that small independently owned local business will cease to exist. You are all valued customers!
