Local Holiday Shopping

Give Your Community the Gift of Buying Local

Who says gifts needs to be purchased at a mall or online? And why must we buy merchandise that was produced overseas? Aren’t locally-made items more unique and local sales more beneficial to our economy?

This year, Currituck County is joining communities across the country in organizing a “buy local” movement, a campaign that encourages consumers to purchase their gifts at local stores and shops.

So, citizens are invited to “think outside the box” and look to purchase goods and services here within our community. Doesn’t just about everyone get haircuts? Why not give a gift certificate to a local hair salon? And wouldn’t a gym membership be a great gift for a friend or family member?

Here are just a few other gift ideas that can be bought right here in Currituck County…

  • Oil change
  • Hand-made jewelry or pottery
  • Computer tune-up
  • Landscaping / lawn service
  • Breakfast, lunch or dinner at a restaurant
  • New thermostat (to save on heating/air costs)
  • Tax preparation service
  • Greens fees at a golf course
  • Painting a room or building a dream outdoor deck

Why not make it a game to see just how many gifts you can buy locally this year?! Happy shopping, and don’t forget to collect your receipts to be eligible to win prizes!
