Before you head out of town ...
by Patti Stokes

This year I've intensified my commitment to do my Christmas shopping locally as much as possible. Before I head out of town, I'm going through the list of unique gift items offered by business owners and employees who live right here in the northwest area and serve our communities in countless ways, from the services and products they offer to the taxes they pay, to the people they employ to the athletic teams they sponsor, the items they donate for events, and the volunteer hours they log in.

From The Old Mill of Guilford, just off N.C. 68, to the Fat Cat Ltd. in the Oak Ridge Commons shopping center, Josie's Boutique across from the shopping center to Stonefield Cellars in Stokesdale to Sadies and some of the other shops in downtown Stokesdale, Purgason's and It's Trendee in Summerfield - and more - there are countless reasons to shop locally, so before heading into the big city, look around for the treasures right here at home, and shop here whenever you can. It's a win-win for you and your community.
