Show your community a lot of love this Valentine's Day by visiting one of our local eateries, pubs, or music venues with your sweetheart! There is plenty of love in the air such as huge chocolate covered strawberries at Holly's Deli (makes a great gift-I already ordered mine), heart-shaped cheesecake from none other than Bruce's Fabulous Foods, or how about a limo ride to dinner from Boondock's Sports Bar & Grill!
In 2010 American Express launched Small Business Saturday in an effort to encourage consumers to buy locally and help sustain their economy. The campaign has been a huge success since its inception and we in McDowell are on board to help our residents find local vendors to celebrate Small Business Saturday not only on one day, but all year long!
