A host of local merchants in St. Michael are teaming up to provide specials to people who want to shop local this holiday season.
The Shop Saint Michael group, which is celebrating its fifth anniversary in the community next year, has teamed up for “Shop Saint Michael” Week, as designated by Mayor Jerry Zachman and the members of the St. Michael City Council.
“Keeping the money in our community helps local businesses, reduces local tax burden and saves money,” said Nick Shultz, senior vice president of First American Bank and president of the group, said. “This is a group that really wants people to know about the great things we have for them right here in our city.”
Here’s a complete rundown on some of the specials, which will also be posted on Shop Saint Michael’s Facebook page and website throughout the week next week.
