Support Local Businesses This Holiday Season
Independent retailers are a part of what makes our towns and cities unique. Thriving local businesses tend to be more active in their communities, hire more employees and are more likely to be able to provide benefits for employees. This year, challenge yourself to shop small all season long. Your support makes a difference!
We know some people live for holiday shopping, but for those of us who find it downright stressful, a list of locally-sourced specials is just the ticket. We’ve asked Indiana Grown members to share their holiday discounts, seasonal items and events with us, so we can share with you!
