Ease your nerves and shop local

-A +A
I have a solution for Mike Fredy’s miserable shopping expedition to Roseville the other evening (Reader Input, Dec. 22): “Think Auburn First!”  Shopping locally, when you can, is a rewarding experience when dealing with our wonderful merchants who also support the local non-profit organizations in our community. It also helps your local economy by keeping your tax dollars where they belong, as well as benefits the citizens of this community by providing jobs.  It is definitely less stressful to shop closer to home than engage in nerve-racking freeway driving and fighting mall crowds during the holiday season and all year long! For more information on why shopping locally benefits you and your family, please go to the website and have a safe and happy holiday season everyone! Cheryl Maki, Auburn
