“I love to shop locally for many reasons. First, the local shops I frequent are conveniently located—I can get in, find what I need, and out relatively quickly. I end up knowing most of the people in the store- so great customer service. Also, I try to buy interesting and unique things that I wouldn’t be able to find just anywhere. Last, knowing that I am going to be bringing a great gift or rocking an awesome outfit that no one else has makes me happy and keeps me coming back!”
