Let’s not sugar coat things. It’s been a tough year, and there are probably more tough months ahead for local businesses.
For obvious reasons, shopping locally for the holidays (and every day) is more important than ever this year.
So if you’re purchasing gifts for friends and family, try to remember that local places need your support. And if you have dollars to spend, consider spending them with small, local places instead of giant corporations. Get your gifts from local boutiques. Pick up a restaurant gift card from a local establishment. Leave a really good tip, if you can.
Here are several options to help you get started. Hang in there, everyone.
Ozark Natural Foods
Make your holiday shopping easier and explore at Ozark Natural Foods Co-Op holiday gift galore! We’ve got something for everyone to love, whether it’s cozy slippers, handmade ornaments, local coffee, fair trade chocolate, or just a thoughtful card to let your loved ones know you’re thinking of them. Support local this year and make the Co-Op your one-stop shop for all your holiday essentials and more!
