I believe that a vibrant town center is a huge part of the “livability quotient” when choosing where to live.
Ice cream shops, hardware stores, restaurants and other specialty retail and service businesses aren’t simply a convenience.
They are places to meet, to gather, and gossip. You often get the real scoop on what’s happening in town by hanging around a local coffee shop.
Give the recently announced closing of Wellesley’s sporting goods retailer Thunder, it seems even more important to ask you to support “Small Business Saturday”.
Sure, you’ll probably get a better deal on Black Friday and Cyber Monday, but you’ll get more value as a Wellesley or Natick resident by supporting your downtown merchants.
Here’s a short list of shops to find unique gifts for the holidays:
Wasiks Cheese Shop
Villari’s Martial Arts
Bacon Street Farm
Bakery on the Common

Thank you for making your town stronger by helping make your local businesses successful!
