‘Tis the Season to Shop Local

We all want to help our neighbor, especially at this giving time of year.  For many local small businesses it’s anything but business as usual, and many are suffering from the “negative” effects of COVID.  The good news? There are many ways you can support small businesses while finding something for everyone on your list – right here on Main Street in Clarence!  There are so many options. Here are just a few gift ideas.

Why not offer someone on your list an Italian dinner out – or in?  Head to Orazio’s by Zarcone, 9415 Main Street, for a gift certificate or get it online at Orazios.com.  Give yourself a little treat as well, and take some effort out of the holiday,  by ordering your Christmas Eve catered holiday meal by Orazio’s!  See their website for more information.  

Fresheez Restaurant/Take out is offering $30 gift cards for only $20!  What a savings!  This is a great gift for the CHS student who wants to enjoy the breakfast or lunch offerings from a great new place located at 9560 Main Street right across from Clarence High School. 

If coffee is a favorite for someone on your list, Goodrich Coffee at Main and Goodrich is offering terrific holiday coffee and treat bundles for $50 each.  

Do you want to go big?  Impress, and pamper, someone on your list with an overnight stay at the charming and historic Asa Ransom House, located at 10529 Main Street in the heart of the hollow.  Special for the holidays, they are offering a free night’s stay at their beautiful inn when one night is purchased.  This gift certificate is good until April.  The exquisite gift shop located inside the inn is also open for business most mornings through Christmas.

For the health conscious, Core Concepts Pilates and Wellness, located at 9055 Main Street, is offering $80 Massage or Reiki Gift Certificates for only $70.

For those who enjoy beer, Murphy Brown’s Craft Beer Emporium, at 9500 Main Street, is open for retail business and for “to go beer” in fresh cans and take home growler fills.  They offer gift cards in-store or by calling 407-3466.  Their Holiday Special:  “Purchase Any Growler and Get a Second Growler, of the same size, for half price.” They are also offering $3 off any one regularly priced 4 Pack.  For the hearty, there is some outdoor seating available during this “orange” Covid period.  Murphy Brown’s is also part of the Untappd app.  You can use the app to have fun keeping track of new beers that you’ve tried and earning points for prizes!
