Quincy businesses prepared for last-minute Valentine’s day shopping today with the District’s shop local Saturday.
A dozen local businesses participated in the event that takes place four times a year.
Business owners said they work together, offering special promotions and sales that entice shoppers to spend their money at locally owned businesses, that helps keep money in the community.
“It’s just before Valentines day, so it gives everyone an opportunity to get out and get those last minute outfits, gifts, all of those things that they like to have,” said co-owner of for Home and Her Chris Taylor, “on a weekend like this one when it’s better than it has been, at least there’s not snow yet! They get an opportunity to get out and enjoy themselves down town.”
The next shop local Saturday is May 11th.
