The holiday season has proven to be busy as usual this year, and the last week of shopping before Christmas is suddenly here. The shoppers are hurriedly making their final rounds with hopes of finding a great bargain for those last few names on the list.
Area merchants are preparing for the sudden last minute shoppers, and have taken great pride in their displays of distinctive selections in gifts. According to Expositor Promotions Director Christy Hampton, the businesses in this region are known for their quality and selection.
Hampton said, “The shops and business in this vicinity are noted for their unique items, especially during the Christmas season. People travel from all over the state to visit these establishments.”
As the clock is ticking down the last few minutes before December 25,
frazzled nerves may overtake a shopper’s happy holiday spirit. However, the local selection of gifts is enormous, and can easily be seen by paying a visit to any area merchant.
Hampton said, “I feel it is important to support the businesses in this area, because they are very supportive of their communities.”
