Sick of shopping yet? Cool, neither are we. And if you’re anything like this Jacksonville Mom, you were paralyzed by choice this past weekend and will be doing the majority of your holiday shopping at the very last minute.
Fortunately, we can both find everything we need right here in town. Plus, did you know that if each adult in Jacksonville spent just $50 at a local establishment, we’d be putting more than $37 million back into our economy? Math isn’t really my thing, but that feels like it’s a good idea.
