Shopping With The Saints
The Greater St. Charles County Chamber of Commerce and the Cities of St. Charles and St. Peters are once again encouraging residents to shop local as they purchase holiday gifts.
"This is an important time of year for local retailers," said Scott Tate, President & CEO of the Chamber. "The holidays are when many of them finally make a profit."
When you shop local, you are also supporting jobs and the sales taxes you pay on your purchases are used to fund roads, police, and parks. Additionally, by shopping local, you are also helping our coummunity in other ways. You are supporting a business that donates to local charitable causes in their fundraising efforts, sponsors local little league teams, and employs volunteers who make our community a great place to live.
We ask that when you are looking to purchase gifts this holiday season (and throughout the year), you consider Shopping with the Saints and support businesses in Saint Charles and Saint Peters.
