Describe what ‘shop local’ means to you.
Keeping money in your town maintains the small-town quality. People love the quaintness of Kilmarnock. Strolling from store to store and getting to really know people. Your customers turn into your friends.
Some of our customers from out of town call us to see how the weather is and what events are going on for the weekend to see if they should come to the area.
How does shopping local impact small business?
It keeps our doors open. We always tell our customers thank you for supporting us girls. A lot of times they thank us for being here.
How did your business fare in the last two Shop Local events?
Fall was better than spring. We definitely saw an increase in business in the fall as a result of the campaign.
What are you offering customers for this Shop Local event?
20% off all gifts and accessories. And, beginning November 9th and running through December 21st you may enter a drawing to win a six foot curio for Christmas. No purchase necessary and you need not be present to win.
Is there anything else you would like to add?
