One of my absolute favorites, is Stillwell’s! There’s a sort of nostalgia when I walk into their air conditioning doors.

Supporting Local Businesses
Small-business owners love what they do, and they play an important role in supporting their local communities. From providing a hometown feel for localities to working hard to know their neighbors, these small companies do a lot to help others who live nearby in many different ways. When it comes to showing your support, it’s important to do so, and not just to help them gain revenue and stay operational. Everything from the local clothing boutique to the corner bakery relies on the support of loyal customers to keep its doors open. Now more than ever, is the best time to support local businesses.
