We know that some of you have been caught up in the almost mass hysteria of this early morning and the rest of the day.

We hope that your efforts have paid off and you have saved the money on goods purchased that you thought you might.

If you are like many of us though and just can't stand the lines and the hassle, we have a thought for you.

Do your shopping with a local merchant. If you stop by, you might find that our local merchants are willing to work with you on prices and will probably ensure that you will have good service on the product purchased.

Supporting our local merchants not only helps support an entrepreneur and their employees, it helps support you and your families.

Taxes spent her locally stay here locally; profits made here are generally reinvested here.
