SUPERIOR, Wis. – A little extra love is in the air tonight in Superior with the first-ever “Keep Your Love Local Day.” It’s all about supporting local businesses for the Valentine’s Day holiday.

It’s the day before the February holiday, and businesses in Superior are feeling the love with “Keep Your Love Local Day.”

Superior Mayor Jim Paine wants to encourage locals to open their wallets at local stores and shops, while celebrating their loved ones.

“We want to help them out,” said Mayor Paine. ” We want the citizens of Superior to help them out and keep their love local, do something special for somebody this week and do it in one of our local shops.”

The key is to keep local dollars local to help establish a foundation for a stronger business community.

“The owners and the employees are our friends and neighbors,” said Mayor Paine. “The money stays here. It gets reinvested in our economy and it is personalized. It’s the kind of thing we actually need.

Blue Arrow Boutique has provided Superior with women’s clothing since 2014. Owners of the shop say it’s about helping out your neighbors with a little love, especially on Valentine’s Day.

“It’s just another way to tell people and remind them that we’re down here and that there’s a lot of options for Valentine’s Day to get out and shop locally,” said Aimee Glonek, co-owner of Blue Arrow Boutique.

Artistic Florals By Leslie sells flower arrangements and has been in the local community for the past three years.

“It’s about being friendly and kind and nice so that all of us can get together and share our love with all of our customers and I just, I think it’s just a great thing to bring the community together and be part of something like this,” said Leslie Hietala, owner of Artistic Florals By Leslie. “I think it’s awesome.”

The day is a reminder and a reason to keep things local on these special days or on any day. Mayor Paine is hoping to bring back “Keep Your Love Local Day” for years to come.
