When you shop at your local Mom & Pop store instead of a big retailer, your dollars are directly invested back into your own community. Areas with multiple brick-and-mortar shops and businesses help to preserve the character and charm of their neighborhood. Small businesses help shape the social framework of a community.
Our local businesses give the personalized attention that you deserve. We offer unique goods that you won’t find with a mainstream retailer and have the expertise you need and want. Small businesses impact our everyday lives more than you realize. They contribute to our local economies, employ our friends and neighbors, and give back to our communities.
Your local small business owners are your neighbors. We are the parent or grandparent of your child’s classmate. We might be the person you see walking our dogs on your street every morning. Or maybe we are the person you always come across at the grocery store. Small business owners are proud to be a part of the community and passionate about what we do. Our customers are like family to us.
So, this holiday season, and always, shop small. Fall in love with all that Skowhegan has to offer. Enjoy a cup of “joe” or treat yourself to some fresh flowers or a sweet treat. Discover that unique piece to express just how much that person means to you. Buy that special piece of jewelry you can pass down from generation to generation. Fall in love over and over, give her the ring she cannot wait to show off to all her friends!
Stop in to say hello, we’d love to see you.
