It's that time of year again. It's almost Halloween, which means it's pretty much Thanksgiving. Which means it's almost time to think holiday gifts. Right? It feels like it gets earlier every year. But after the past few holiday seasons, we're accepting our new normal. And honestly, we're more excited than ever to celebrate this time. To hug our loved ones or just be thankful for those far away that have survived (and hopefully thrived) over the past year.
But for many small businesses this has meant it's time to close-up shop. And for some, they're fighting for survival. Fighting to serve their communities and each other. So we've put together a stellar list of small businesses that could use your support this holiday season. There's something for everyone and so many places to look for unique, quality gifts. Check it out...
