Thank you, JP. Thanks to each and every one of you who told us you were making a concerted effort to sup-port our local businesses this holiday season. Thanks to each and every one of you who focused on doing all your holiday shopping on Centre and South Streets and who encouraged your friends and family to shop at in-dependent businesses.

In the midst of scary news about the economy, we know you were cautious about your holiday spending. We respect that need. But you still celebrated the holidays with your family and friends and you came to our local businesses to get your gifts. We, too, were concerned about this holiday season. Our livelihood de-pends on it. And we were so very aware of your support throughout the season.

Your decision to shop locally means we can go on making our living in our small businesses that in turn, support our community. It truly is a symbiotic relationship. Together we’ll get over the hump of the current economic concerns and look forward to the new year with optimism.

Thank you, JP, for your consciousness and your efforts. Your support is appreciated.

Elaine Hackney and everyone at
