The annual holiday shopping season is a crucial time for our community’s retailers and local officials are expressing optimism regarding the level of business activity they can expect over the next month.
Yankton Area Progressive Growth CEO Nancy Wenande says both shopping activity last summer and on-line shopping options that are available locally are reasons for confidence.
Wenande says local businesses are making accommodations so that consumers feel safe while shopping in their stores.
Wenande says she encourages anyone who is thinking of shopping elsewhere to check first with local merchants to see what options they have available.
Wenande says more information on local retailers is available through the Yankton Area Chamber of Commerce’s website.
