Shop locally for your holiday gift giving
–A message from our advertisers–
–This holiday season, the Paso Robles Daily News would like to encourage the community to shop locally and support local businesses – the preferred outlet during this gift purchasing season. Did you know that nearly two-thirds of the money spent at locally owned businesses across the nation is reinvested in individual communities? Shopping with local merchants – whether looking for that perfect gift or finding a perfect hotel for holiday visitors – benefits the entire community. Ring in the holidays with the Downtown Paso Robles Main Street Association‘s Small Business Saturday on Nov. 28 and bring your children or grandchildren for photos with Santa at the Holiday House.
“Shopping locally helps all the small businesses that bring something unique to our community,” said Norma Moye, executive director of the Paso Robles Downtown Business Association. “The businesses do so much for our community throughout the year and help with so many events; by shopping locally we can pay things forward to those businesses.”
Shopping local and shopping small businesses helps support the parks, recreation facilities, libraries, community organizations and other aspects of the area that make this community a great place to live. Here are a few of the ways that shopping locally supports the local community and helps reach out to other communities this holiday season.
With the holiday shopping season in full swing, the following are offering their usual blend of hospitality and warmth along with extended hours and one-of-a-kind items to make this gift-giving season a jolly one. Enjoy our Paso Robles Holiday Gift Guide.
