Shop Local

As the holiday season kicks into high gear, think of your community before you order online or head over the bridge for the big box stores. This is an excellent opportunity to support your local community by shopping with your local businesses. Shop Small Business Saturday.

Nestled between the monolithic shopping days of Black Friday and Cyber Monday, Small Business Saturday, celebrated on November 29th this year, gives local business some well-deserved attention.

Local business is the lifeblood of any community, including ours. They create jobs. They provide services and products that residents and visitors need. They keep our economy running. We are very fortunate here on our Island to have a majority of locally-owned businesses. While some might complain at the shortage of national chains on our Island, many more love living and visiting here for that very reason. We are a small town and in many ways reflective of what small towns used to be like everywhere, before the Wal-marts and Walgreens and Lowes pushed most of the locally-owned businesses aside.

Islanders know how important supporting their own community is. While wed like to draw visitors and shoppers to our island from far and wide, the base of island business enterprise is local support.

We recognize this during the summer months when visitor numbers are down by patronizing our local shops, bars and restaurants. We should remember it during the holiday shopping season also. And invite our visitors to support our Beach businesses.
