November 27, 2014
By Bob Peters

Cornwall Ontario – For many retailers, the six weeks heading up to New Year’s Day can account for 60% of their annual sales. This puts a special focus on the benefits of the shopping locally this holiday season and the Cornwall and Area Chamber of Commerce is helping to celebrate the offerings of Cornwall merchants.

“Our small businesses employ hundreds of local people and give back to the community by supporting local charities and minor sports,”  says Lezlie Strasser, Executive Manager of the Chamber. “We hope that area residents will return the favour by making a purchase in one of our local stores or restaurants.”
