’Tis the holiday season and with it comes that annual list of loved ones to buy gifts for that is longer than your arm. As you’re out and about searching for the perfect gift and checking your list twice, don’t forget that shopping small may be the best way to go at Smith Mountain Lake. Local retailers not only have special, distinctive gift items that are easy to personalize, they’re also deserving of the support.
A recent article in the Smith Mountain Laker Magazine highlights the benefits of shopping at small businesses and the reasons why it’s important to include them in your holiday gift buying. Small businesses are well connected to the local lake community, understand their customers, are personable and often give a lot of their financial support to local charities and organizations which supports the local economy and development.
Make sure local businesses are on your radar as you shop until you drop this holiday season. And we hope you enjoy every moment of this special time of year!
