Time for holiday shopping—let’s do it local! (Sarah Gronberg / Hville Blast)

We hear “shop local” a lot this time of year. But why is this so important?

According to the Huntsville/Madison County Chamber of Commerce, approximately $68-73 dollars goes back into local activity for every $100 spent shopping local. That’s a huge impact.

Not only does shopping local impact the local economy, it brings together the community. Besides, you don’t get to meet locals and Huntsville small business owners on Amazon (*wink*).

We’ve talked with several of those small business owners to get their stories and what makes their businesses truly special. So, we decided to round up many of them (plus some extras) for a Small Business Saturday gifting guide—let’s get to it!
