How can it already be October? I am a big fan of the Holidays. I love all of the sights, sounds, and values that the holidays bring, but I am not sure I am ready to see all of the decorations and hoopla in stores. Ready or not, it is here and I know people will soon be in a frenzy of shopping, decorating, and preparing. This Holiday I ask for you to do one thing. Shop local.
Your local merchants are the same people that pay taxes for your roads, schools, etc... They are the people that sponsor all of your children's events, and they are the ones that work to make this community great. I always hear, "I didn't know XYZ did that?" Take it upon yourself to seek a local merchant and shop local.
Want to have a chance to meet some of them face to face, this year stop by the Living Leander Community EXPO on Nov. 21 to have a great evening and find out more about your local businesses, watch some local entertainment, and maybe even leave with a $1000 spend locally gift card!!
