Last-Minute Shoppers Go Local For Holidays

DULUTH, Minn. —

With only one week to go before Christmas, it’s crunch time for some last minute shoppers.

The Fitger’s Complex was packed with people today, looking around for some of the more unique stores that the building has to offer. For some shoppers, supporting small businesses is important this holiday season.

“I love Fitger’s shopping,” said shopper Doreen Bong. “Lots of unique stores, a lot of locally owned shops.”

“It is a different shopping experience here, because we are locally owned, all of our shops have something that you might not find somewhere else,” Fitger’s mall manager Tami Tanski-Sherman said.
