Shop Local Holiday Gift Guide

Shop Local Holiday Gift Guide

The holiday shopping season is upon us. With everything going on this time of year it can easily become overwhelming to find everyone on your list the perfect gift.  Make holiday shopping easier by starting with a plan, this allows you to research where to shop and what to buy. Start by writing a list of every one you want to buy gifts for and set a budget.  Setting a budget that works with not only your plan but with your wallet is key.  Avoid last minute shopping. Waiting to purchase gifts can cause a sense of urgency that can easily blow your budget.

The lack of big box stores in North Platte is a big topic lately, however North Platte does not lack retail businesses to shop at. Keeping your holiday shopping local is a great way to support our community. One way that communities succeed is by strengthening the local economy through shopping local.   Every time you choose to shop in your local community you are helping your community’s economy grow and flourish.   Money spent by shopping at local businesses is more likely to go back into the community. The more money that stays in the community means better schools, better roads and more support for local nonprofit organizations, police and fire departments. When neighbors take care of neighbors, communities are stronger.

As a way to help we have put together a Shop Local Holiday Gift Guide, that has something for everyone on your list. Discover the best presents for Mom, Dad, Grandpa, Grandma, the kids or anyone else, while you shop local and stay on budget.
