Shop local, shop small this holiday season!

Posted on 01 December 2014 (0)

Sending big love to our customers and friends for your support this year.  Whether you came to a concert, purchased a gift, attended a young artist show, took a class, donated to a Butler County Humane Society fundraiser, or showed up to help out at any of our events this year, we are thankful for you!

For the holidays,  please consider buying from your local small businesses.  As chairperson of the Shopping Group for Butler County Tourism, I’m more than aware of the large number of independently-owned businesses in the county who would love to have you consider them when making a purchase. Your money goes to the local economy, which in turn helps us all.

Wishing you joy this holiday season!

MJ & Dennis McCurdy, Owners
