I highly recommend shopping at locally-owned businesses year-round, but the holiday season is crucial. When you buy locally, you are supporting your friends, family, and neighbors right here in Lubbock. You're giving back to our community and making a massive difference. Skip out on the big chain stores and try to buy locally sourced gifts and products whenever possible this season.
