Buy local this holiday season
Don't forget to patronize your small, locally-owned businesses as you shop for the holidays!
The Chesapeake Sustainable Business Alliance website is searchable by category or neighborhood, and with a $10 member card you're eligible for the specials mentioned on the "merchant discounts" page.
Personally, I use this guide to plan out my shopping attack on Hampden: you can park anywhere along the Avenue (36th street, that is) and walk to about 17 of these locally-owned stores. Much better than driving between big box stores or fighting crowds at the mall!
