Shop Online and Still Shop Local

Shop Local

It may seem counterintuitive to promote online shopping, but if done through local stores, the benefits are the same as going into storefronts, (although it may be a little easier to click rather than walk away from that sweater you don’t really *need*). 

Check out these local stores’ online offerings for gift ideas for the 2020 holiday season — or perhaps just because. 

If you’ve never been inside the store, or are not familiar with the brand, check out our staff recommendations for a place to start. Happy couch-surfing!
