How To Shop Local For The Holidays

How to #SupportLocal This Holiday Season


The holiday shopping season is already in full swing! While the convenience of shopping at large retailers seems appealing, it is more important than ever to support local businesses this holiday season! The ability we all have to support our community and all the people who make it a wonderful place to live, will always be worth the time and effort in our book. This year more than ever, it’s important that we all band together to help small and local businesses get through COVID and help them stay open.  

Here are a few ways you can support local this season:  

  • Spend time learning about local businesses in your area  
  • Follow local businesses on social media  
  • Take advantage of local retailers who offer online shopping experiences  
  • Share your amazing local finds and experiences on social media (make sure to tag the store!)  
  • Check out our local winter farmers’ market 
  • Give the gift of a meal by giving a gift card to your favorite local restaurant  

We want to see your local finds this year so make sure to tag us @visitocon on or use the #visitocon Instagram to show off your amazing local buys!
