Tallahassee businesses aren't letting big-box stores have all the fun when it comes to offering customers big breaks this holiday season.
They've got deals for just about everyone on your shopping list.
Local businesses and others, including the Tallahassee-Leon County Office of Economic Vitality, are encouraging residents to shop where they live this holiday.
OEV Director Keith Bowers said this holiday season is an important time for local businesses who may be able to cash in on residents looking to support businesses in their backyard. Last year, he said, some shoppers weren't comfortable with in-person shopping due to the COVID-19 pandemic like they are now.
"It's a great opportunity for us to showcase our local businesses and point consumers toward them," Bowers said. "The benefit of doing that is these dollars stay in our community. They go to support families and our neighbors and folks who work in the retail service industry. So we want to make sure we're shining a light on them."
