Local for the Holidays: ECDI Shopping Guide

Updated: Nov 14, 2023

There's no place like local for the holidays!

It's easy to order from big box stores, but local businesses offer unique, curated merchandise for gifts you won’t find anywhere else. The owners who run these businesses are deeply embedded in the community. They’re friends and neighbors. Plus, a larger portion of the money spent at local shops gets recirculated within the community, creating a multiplier effect! We'll make it a little easier on you, by providing our ECDI staff's favorite small businesses across Ohio.
