Letter to the Editor
Thank you for supporting local businesses this holiday

December 05, 2012

Dear Editor,

We extend warm holiday wishes and heartfelt thank yous to this wonderful community. The support you showed us on Small Business Saturday was just amazing.

Before the doors officially opened and long after they closed, local residents kept our stores over-flowing with customers! It was refreshing to see all your faces and comforting to know you were shopping in town instead of “the mall.” Support of our local businesses is vital to our community. Did you know that for every $100 spent at a local business, $68 stays local!?

We are hosting Santa and two of his sleigh team, Donner and Blitzen (real live reindeer) on Dec. 16 from noon to 4. Our Family Fun Day is in support of Toys for Tots. In the spirit of Christmas, please bring a new, unwrapped toy to fill Santa’s sleigh. Your donation will help those in need. And, while you are here, please get your picture taken with Santa (FREE). Watch for our holiday specials in next week’s Clarkston News & Penny Stretcher!

Thank you and Merry Christmas
