Support Local Businesses During the Holiday Season

Support Local Businesses During the Holiday SeasonThis time of year is known for shopping, eating out, and planning fabulous holiday parties. In the midst of all the hustle and bustle, don’t forget to support local Addison businesses! After all, everyone is still struggling with the ongoing pandemic, and this is a good way to check off your holiday list and help the community at the same time! Here are some tips for supporting local this month.

  1. Shop locally. Village on the Parkway was awarded our 2021 Readers’ Choice Award for Best Outdoor Shopping Center and is home to several restaurants, specialty retailers, a movie theatre, spas, and more. You can buy Christmas presents at Gem Classics, Diamontrigue, or Francesca’s. Gift cards make for great stocking stuffers, including AMC Village on the Parkway 9, European Wax Center, or Grand Spa.
  2. Use an Addison restaurant for your holiday party. Corridor-based Culinary Art Catering offers fantastic catered parties that will make your corporate or personal holiday party top-notch. Or, you could book a room or order food to-go from one of the 180+ restaurants in Addison.
  3. Order from small coffee shops while shopping. Everyone needs a pick-me-up, so take a break from holiday shopping and errands by grabbing a delicious cup of joe from a local coffee shop, like Astoria Caffe and Wine Bar or Dunn Brothers (which are both offering amazing seasonal coffees right now!).
  4. Be generous with tipping! Support those who are working so hard right now by blessing your waitstaff or your beauty technicians with a little something extra. This is also a good time to write an encouraging note on your check or send your favorite small business owners holiday cards to let you know you support them.

Whether you support local restaurants, visit local entertainment venues, or buy gifts from local stores, there are plenty of ways to support the Addison economy this time of year and get amazing gifts at the same time. Thanks for all you do, readers!
