I believe many retailers are hoping for a great Christmas. Christmas sales either make you or break you for that year. Best of luck to all the local retailers out there.

Sally & David - setting aside at least some money to spend local is a great idea!

Rene - We might be spending less this year, but let's spend a little at home!  Thanks Rene

Harry - I have to agree, it's make or break time for some retailers.

I am big on shopping local. I am a local businessman and I like when local people call me so why shouldn't I do the same thing.  Yes, sometimes it may be a bit more expensive, but the time and gas i save outweighs the small extra cost!

It looks like arts and crafts are going to do very well this year. Our various festivals here are reporting more vendors than ever, and brisk sales, too.
