Okay, let’s be clear, the NDDC didn’t invent the concept of shopping locally to strengthen your own community’s economy. In fact, we didn’t even invent the idea of running an ad campaign to encourage people to shop locally for the holidays.
So, we’ll give credit to that guy in the pink shirt and his bank. The 1st National Bank has been running an ad campaign for several years now that highlights local businesses during this critical time of the year. Here’s just one example of the campaign that we at the NDDC just love.
So don’t just take our word for it, listen to Dave Shumway too, there’s good places and people here in Northfield. And remember, for a truly happy holiday season for everyone, shop locally.
