Shop Local This Holiday Season

There is still hustle and bustle, while spreading holiday cheer... We proudly support local businesses and hope you do too! While doing your holiday shopping we urge you to purchase from local boutiques, restaurants, bakeries, and other shops. Many local businesses are offering online shopping and curbside pickup for your convenience. Local businesses around the country continue to need our help and support throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Temporary closures for local businesses around the country are quickly turning into permanent closures with a 34% increase in permanent closures since July.1

KOAT created a list of small businesses around the state that includes restaurants, grocery and supply stores, repair companies, services, auto companies, retail stores, entertainment, and education companies. View the list. The list was created in May of 2020 so please call the business to ensure they are open and to get their current operating hours. 

New Mexico True has also put together a holiday gift guide featuring local businesses and products. Still need gift ideas? Check out the gift guide.
