This holiday season help support our area business by buying local and shopping small!
Did you know that when you shop small 68% of the money you spend stays local, verse only 43% when you shop at a big box store? This means that by shopping local your money is directly helping a local family purchase their groceries and put gas in their cars. Its a great way help your dollars go further and back into the things you love about your community!
That's why we are encouraging everyone to buy local and shop small!

Shop Small Gifting Guide
Coffee Lovers - Send your friends on the altimate coffee experience. Grab a cute mug that fits the recipients personality, add a bag of flavored coffee from Take a Peek and add in small gift cards from all of the local coffee shops in the area. This is a great way to experience new flavors and have fun with friends.

Fishermen's Delight - Stop by A&K Bait & Tackel in Marinette or Walleye's & Whitetails in Coleman to find some great gear, don't be afraid to ask the experts at the counter about what type of gear is recommended for certain fish species or bodies of water. Add in some hot sticks from Pelkin's Smokey Meats for a great fishing trip snack!
