Shop Franklin County, it does matter
Is anyone else tired of the Christmas season starting at major retailers two weeks before Halloween?
We've nearly pushed Thanksgiving out of the way altogether.
If this irritates you, you can follow a one-step plan to get back at those who want you to start thinking Christmas the day after school starts: Don't buy presents from them.?
You can start by shopping at home, buying some presents from as many local merchants, who support the Franklin County community, as possible.?
Shopping locally will provide our community with more tax dollars and more revenue in our local economy which will be spread throughout the county.
Whether it is a gift or a gift certificate from a local restaurant, give a thought to buying it here in Franklin County.
