Someone asked me recently to pick my favorite local small business. It was an honest question, but I couldn’t help but shudder at the thought of choosing just one.
It’d be like asking a parent to choose their favorite child. I can’t! I love all of them!
I’m sure I’m preaching to the choir on this one, but I mention this because it’s the holiday season. The calendar has officially flipped to Thanksgiving, and before you know it, Christmas will be here. So, please do the right thing and shop local. I know it’s our job here at Murray Media to highlight small businesses in the pages of our neighborhood magazines and during Best of Denton County time. Still, I’ve always looked to my fellow small-business owners for any of my needs. It could be something as simple as picking up donuts for the family on a lazy Saturday morning, grabbing a cup of coffee on the way into work, or gifting myself a long-overdue trip to the local day spa.
And yes, it also includes buying Christmas gifts.
The personal attention I receive is out of this world. These are my friends, neighbors, and even family. They work hard, and in almost every case, you can find what you’re looking for without having to go to a big-box store.
As luck would have it, our local business scene is overflowing with the best of the best, and they’re all committed to a servant attitude. We should be supporting them during the holiday season. I know I will. Will you?
Thanks for reading our latest issue!
