Chamber Urges 'Be Loyal, Buy Local'


It's the holiday shopping season in Rim Country. Each year Rim Country has the businesses to provide for your holiday shopping needs. Shop here in Rim Country and support those businesses that have supported the community through donations to the area's charitable and local programs. It's time to support local businesses by shopping in the Rim Country. It also saves gasoline and time.

The Rim Country is fortunate to have a diverse base of businesses. The merchants are a great mixture of locally owned businesses, as well as regionally and nationally known stores. More new businesses are coming to the Rim Country every month. Take a pleasant trip around the area and visit all the local Rim Country businesses to see the wide variety of friendly shops from which to make your holiday purchases.

The Rim Country also has many restaurants offering a variety of local and specialized breakfasts, lunches and dinners. Make a reservation or call ahead for take-out to stay nourished during this busy season.

As the New Year nears, finish up the year-end chores. Check smoke detectors and insurance policies and look into making a donation to the "Credit for Kids" programs at area schools and other charities that qualify for the credits on income tax returns.

Take a moment to review the successes of the year and plan for the future.

Finally, remember, it is the season to give. Is there someone in the community to help with a donation of money, time or materials? Giving to others is a way of giving to yourself.

Happy Holidays

Be Loyal, Buy Local
