You’ve probably seen the signs and gotten the emails about preparing for the new school year. It’s already here! From new hair styles to new clothes, back to school time often means shopping. Spending your money at local shops and salons not only helps the local economy, it also means you will stand out in the crowd with one of a kind items you can’t find at national store chains. 

How will you survive the back to school madness? We’ve got a plan. Shop for the kids, then treat yourself to a little “me” time. Did you know for every $100 you spend in a local small business, $68 stays in the community? (At a chain store, only $43 remains.)
