Where are you spending your holiday budget this year? Gifts from local businesses are more unique (like pottery made by hand right here in Alabama from the Cook Store), and all-in-all, you get better customer service at a locally-owned shop (free gift wrapping at Lamb's Ears, or expert product knowledge at Snoozy's). Keep it local in 2011 and give your community the gift of a healthier economy!

Shopping with online retailers headquartered outside of our area returns just about $0 in economic value to the Birmingham economy. Shopping with your friends and neighbors who own businesses here in Birmingham improves our community and our local economy. Please consider a local business anytime you need to make a purchase.
