Resolve to shop locally this year

Typical New Year’s resolutions include losing weight, exercising more and eating healthier food, but there is another cause worthy of resolutions: shopping at local small businesses.

Downtown Oneonta was a vibrant community during my childhood, and it remains so today. More money stays in our community when you shop locally, and the shop you frequent may employ or be owned by your friends and neighbors. Even if you’re not into the good or service the store offers, a gift card is an ideal gift for birthdays and anniversaries.

Ultimately, supporting a local small business makes our community stronger and more resilient. That’s good news for everyone!
