Thanksgiving hasn’t even passed us by, but the countdown to Christmas has already begun. Folks are already out and about shopping for Christmas gifts for their loved ones.

There’s no better place to do that than right here in Selma. With Black Friday and the Christmas shopping season upon us, it is a great time to remind everyone to shop locally. Studies have shown that when you buy from a locally owned business more of your money is used to make purchases from other local businesses, service providers and farms, strengthening our economy.

Money spent in Selma has a direct impact here because it goes right back into the local economy. Traveling to other cities and spending money there only helps those other cities.

Our local businesses work hard to provide a place for us to shop, and we’re sure they would love to help you find that perfect gift for your loved one.

So, while you’re thinking about what to buy your significant other or your children or family members for Christmas, remember to shop in Selma and keep that money here locally.
