The countdown to Christmas is on — Help Santa and your local merchants
Tuesday, Nov. 25, 2014 — There are only 28 shopping days left before Christmas, and we encourage you to use them thoughtfully. Before you click “submit order” or slide your credit card out of town, ask yourself, “Is this something I could buy locally?”
Yes, this is another “shop local” pitch, but it’s also a realistic one. We realize there are some gifts that just can’t be purchased locally, and some bargains are just too good to pass up. But there are many times when local stores have the right gift at a competitive price. It’s the same with many proprietors throughout Lassen County — they strive to stock their shelves with items tailored for their customers. Sometimes you just have to think outside the box.
