Pandemic Shifts Consumer Preference to Shop Local!

The pandemic has changed consumer preferences and the way we want to shop. According to a survey by SCORE, one in four consumers say they will now purchase a majority of their gifts from small or local businesses.

As communities continue to experience the pandemic together, we realize that the “Shop Local” concept is much more than a slogan, it is a symbol of solidarity with our neighbors…..
