Encourages local shopping

To the editor:

While everyone has had to adapt and make changes due to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic over the past nine months, it’s no secret that our local small businesses have been hit especially hard. They need our support now more than ever, which is why I encourage you to support local–whether it’s for your everyday necessities or your holiday shopping.

As we focus on keeping our community healthy and safe during these unprecedented times, it is important to remember that our local business owners and employees are our neighbors, friends, and such an important part of our vibrant community.

As a Greater Fort Dodge Growth Alliance board member, I know that our local businesses are working diligently to keep both themselves and their customers safe and healthy. So, look no further than right here in the Fort Dodge area to enjoy a great shopping experience either in-store or online.

Let’s keep our businesses thriving so that the Fort Dodge area continues to be a great place to live, work and play.
