Buy local this holiday season

To The Editor:

In the Mad River Valley, we are very fortunate to have a wonderful diversity of local businesses that include talented artisans, unique shops, specialty boutiques, retailers and wonderful restaurants.

These businesses are owned and operated by your friends and neighbors and help to make the Mad River Valley the special place we all hold dear to our hearts. Many of these local merchants were hit hard during the flood. It is great to have so many of them back in business. I encourage all of you to shop locally this holiday season and show your support. Instead of driving to the big box stores or shopping online with an out-of-state merchant, please support the Mad River Valley economy by shopping locally.

This coming weekend, I encourage you to take advantage of the special offers at more than 30 businesses during the 13th annual Country Christmas Open House on Saturday, December 3. This is a great opportunity to kick off your holiday shopping and buy local this holiday season. See you there!
