It’s time to finish up your Christmas shopping and we have some great green gift ideas from local stores. Shopping locally will not only help cure your cabin fever from the winter storm but also help support your community.
Out of every $100 spent at a local store, $68 returns to the community. Out of the same $100 spent at a national chain only $43 returns to the community. We hope you enjoy these ideas and commit to shopping locally this year, even if you only with part of your budget.
