Now that Halloween is over for less than a week it looks like retailers are jumping right into the Christmas season. I recently had to drop off a computer at the Apple store at Bayshore and saw several stores with their Christmas decorations out. I remember when I was a kid I never saw Christmas decor out until after Thanksgiving. Times change so quickly and hopefully this will be a good season for our local retailers.
Look for the yearly Holiday Open House at Sentry the second weekend in December, featuring all of the Shop Port, Think Local businesses. Join us for raffles, samples, an awesome gift card promotion, and FREE pictures with Santa. The open house is something we all look forward to every year. Now that our Shop Port, Think Local group joins in, it makes the event so much bigger and better than before.
Remember your local businesses as you start your Christmas shopping. A gift card is always a great option for that hard to buy for person and our local stores offer something for everyone. Please join us for the holiday even in December and look for great promotions from Shop Port, Think Local throughout the holiday season.
