Shop Local for the Holidays in Lenawee County

Shop Local for the Holidays in Lenawee County

Obviously there are hundreds of retail options out there, and plenty of big box chain stores in which you can probably find everything you need in one spot. But for this holiday season we ask that you take a different approach by considering to shop local and to support the small businesses of Lenawee County.
