Holiday Guide: Shop Local at Sewickley Small Businesses in 2012

Big-name stores are gearing up for holiday shoppers. But there is no need to travel to the crowded malls for your gift-giving needs. Small businesses in Sewickley have unexpected treasures you're sure to love.

If the mere thought of braving large crowds at the mall or big-box stores this holiday season makes you tired, you're not alone.

A number of local, must-visit small businesses are ready and waiting to help you find the perfect gift for anyone on your list. 

At small businesses, you’ll find personal guidance and thoughtful, one-of-a-kind treasures inside. You can also opt to give gift certificates for that favorite hole-in-the-wall restaurant you've been dying to tell your friends and family about, a massage or facial at a local day spa, or an invigorating activity such as martial arts lessons.

Start your shopping list off right by shopping local. For a complete list of local businesses, visit the Sewickley Patch Directory.
