Live LOCAL! Shop LOCAL! Support LOCAL!

  • Your local businesses give back more to the community.
  • More of your dollars stay in the community.
  • More jobs stay in the community.
  • You can find anything you need locally.
  • You develop relationships locally.
  • You can find affordable prices in our community.
  • For every $1 spent at local businesses, 45¢ is reinvested locally. Non-local purchases keep, at most, 15¢ in your local community.
  • Local businesses value, respect and appreciate your patronage.
  • More tax dollars go to schools and roads in your community. 









Join the movement! Take the pledge to show your support: "I pledge to THINK first of my local economy, SHOP first at my local businesses, and BUY first from local companies who give back so much, in so many ways, to my community."

Holly Daze has one focus - to inspire you to do your holiday shopping locally by making it easy for you to find fabulous holiday gifts right here on the Island. Supporting local entrepreneurs as well as local artisans in the process.

Shopping locally is truly one of the best gifts you will give this holiday season - to yourself and to your neighbors. It will help connect you to the joy of the season found during Holly Daze when our businesses are decked out in their finery, and person-to-person, human good cheer abounds. 

Act as if what you do makes a difference. It does. ~William James

I do try and shop local whenever possible..and go to local restaurants. We don't want to see them close either!

Thanks for taking the time to respond to my Blog on supporting local businesses.

I couldn't agree with you more - small, local restaurants need our support too. Larger restaurants have more resources to create a presence, the mom and pop restaurants out there lacking those same deep pockets rely on the support of folks like you. Keep it up!

The more we support local businesses, the more we boost our local economy, which has a huge impact on the national economy. Just continue to support their promos. You can also suggest ideas on how to improve their marketing strategies and expand their area.
