Our View: Importance of shopping local

While shopping locally is a great idea throughout the year, it is even more critical during the holiday season.

While many will be looking to get some fantastic deals on gifts on Black Friday, Small Business Saturday is a wonderful opportunity to spend money with one of the amazing local businesses in the Three Forks area.

Three Forks is blessed with some great Main Street area businesses and many others throughout town, including some very unique ones that are home-based. Each of these businesses offers something that could make for a present for even the pickiest person on your list.

Not only is shopping local a boon for the community, but it is also important to remember that small business owners really care about Three Forks. These businesses give back to local organizations, schools, and sporting teams throughout the year.

Time and time again, they step up to the plate for the betterment of the community -- and it is vital this time of the year to step up to the plate for them.

If you can't find what you're looking for, a gift card from a local business could also be an excellent gift for Christmas or whatever else you might be looking for.

A few purchases this holiday season in Three Forks will make a difference. This community is blessed to have wonderful people and many businesses that offer something unique.

Spend a few hours Saturday or sometime in the next few weeks shopping in Three Forks. It will be well worth it.
