One trend I've noticed in the last few years is great women's clothing shops like the Granite Grinder and Gifts and From the Ground Up Boutique. Capone and Company also has a small selection of new clothing plus a fun vintage selection. Prairie Mercantile Antiques has great vintage clothing along with their wonderful antiques. Gift certificates from retail shops, food stores, restaurants, hair salons and spas are another great idea for the hard to please on your list.
Girlfriend's Getaway Shop Hop is November 6th and 7th. This unique shopping event includes the small shops in Montevideo and Granite Falls. Top off the weekend with the Fun, Wine and Paint event at Prairie's Edge Casino Resort or a great dinner at one of our local restaurants. I'll be highlighting other local businesses in future blogs this fall. Chamber businesses will celebrate Small Business Saturday, November 28th. Santa will be in town and you'll find some great deals throughout Granite Falls. These local businesses contribute to the tax base, donate to fundraisers, entice visitors and create a vibrant community. Money spent locally stays in our town and supports the hardworking families who keep our town alive!
