There is no question that I love to shop and when I need something other than dresses I hit some of the local boutiques. I know how important it is to shop local – it keeps more money in our hometown - supporting our community’s social services, schools, public libraries, etc, etc. In fact locally-owned businesses return about 80% of each dollar to their community. So, I love to shop local for that reason but also because boutiques tend to offer such a better selection than what you’ll find at the mall or other large retailers. I tend to see the same items over and over again at the mall and nothing is really that appealing. The boutiques on the other hand always seem to have something new and different.
So make sure to think about shopping local next time you are in need of some new clothing & accessories. And then make sure to hit SHOP. I can guarantee you won’t be disappointed!!
