December is here and the 2021 holiday shopping season is in full swing, Though it is great to see that business has rebounded in Saratoga County- our small business community is far from out of the woods! With Covid still firmly with us, supply chain issues impacting all industries and staffing shortages seemingly everywhere – the challenge remains real for our small business owners. Community support is vital this holiday season in helping to keep their doors open.
Fortunately for us shoppers, curb side and contactless pick up and online ordering are being offered by more businesses than ever. Using these options provides a safe and convenient way to shop!
