Howell Michigan Holiday Spirit

OK, I admit it.  I’m a big proponent of shopping local.  I don’t care if you’re from Waterford or Birmingham, Ann Arbor or Brighton – patronize your local shops.

A couple of weeks ago, some business owners in Brighton got together and made a video about just that topic. Holiday Gifts

Now we have a great promo video of being in downtown Howell during the Holidays. A lot of video was shot during the Fantasy of Lights Parade (which everybody should see at least once!) and really gives you the feeling of shopping in a downtown area.

Big box stores and malls are fine for some things, but don’t forget about the folks who work right there on your Main Street.  They usually do a lot more for your community than the big franchises (sorry, corporate policy doesn’t let us do that) and they really are more a part of your town than the big outfits.

Make a pledge to yourself that you’ll do at least some of your shopping at the smaller, local businesses this year.  And while you’re in your downtown, why don’t you stop at a local restaurant for lunch or an appetizer and try something new?

Good morning Robert. I totally agree with you. I wrote about small business Saturday and believe it should be an everyday thing. Great video too. Happy holidays.

Thanks for your comment, Sheila.  Everybody would like to see vibrant and thriving downtowns, but too many go to the mall instead.
