Why #shoplocal?  To receive the personal touch!
Because the employees are likely personally invested in the products or services they are selling, they are more likely to go the extra mile for their customers when it comes to providing product/service descriptions, uses, backstories, and customer service.

The Historic Downtown Chelsea Social District is up and running.  Stop by @thegratefulcrow, Jet's Pizza, @uglydogdistillery, and @zouzouscafe for a Social District Drink and walk around town to enjoy the drink and the Spring weather at the same time.  There are signs around town that make it easy to know where the district starts and ends including Palmer Commons.  Cheers!  #socialdistrict #drinkstogo #chelseami #chelseamich #chelseamichigan
