Studies show that each dollar you spend at independent businesses returns 3 times more money to your local economy than one spent at a chain, and almost 50 TIMES MORE (!) than buying from an online mega-retailer. We are fortunate to have a wide variety of small businesses throughout our community offering unique, high-quality goods and services, along with great gift ideas like an escape room adventure at The Art of the Escape in Pine Grove, tickets to a concert at the Tamaqua Community Art Center, a coffee starter kit from Pressed Coffee & Books in Pottsville, a jar of locally distilled spirits from Main Street Moonshine in Schuylkill Haven or Jack Azz Distilling in Spring Glen, and so much more. Find the perfect gift right here!
