Shopping locally for Christmas is just as important as any other time of the year. Small towns and cities have many local businesses that sell exactly what people are looking for when Christmas gift shopping. Vonda McConnell from the Greater Shelbyville Chamber of Commerce said she knows people will have to buy some things online and from bigger cities, but locals should always give their hometown a try first.
McConnell said the Shelbyville Chamber is offering Chamberbucks, which are gift certificates good for any of the near 200 businesses within the chamber. McConnell said if anyone has any issues getting someone a gift this year, they should think about getting their loved ones some Chamberbucks to use.
