Shop Local for gifts they all will love!
The Sacopee Valley area is full of hidden gems. Artists, crafters, trades-people and treasure hunters make up many of our local shops. Shopping locally for the holidays is the best gift you can give a small business owner! Check out some of these great finds.
When spending $100 at a local business, approximately $68 stays within our local economy.
Small Business Saturday
This year, step out of your comfort zone and stop by one of our local bakeries, restaurants, coffee shops, retail stores, etc. and support your neighborhood.
Shopping local matters because it affects our entire community. More money spent in the Sacopee Valley means more money stays within our community. This not only helps our schools and other organizations through taxes, but our local businesses are usually the organizations that support local charities and your favorite events (did somebody say Apple Festival?). Our community wins as a whole, AND the individuals - your neighbors, and friends - who took a chance and made their dream a reality win as well.
Thank you for supporting local businesses!
FYI - The public restrooms in the downtown Cornish village area have been winterized and are closed for the season.
