To the editor,
As a merchant in downtown Mineola, I would like to thank Holly Herring, Main Street director, and Marianne Eubanks, chamber of commerce director, for their efforts in promoting ‘Shop Local’ to the residents of Wood County. Count Your Blessings, a Christian Book and Gift Shop, had record sales for November and December. I would also like to thank those citizens that walked the streets of downtown Mineola for their Christmas gifts.
Many new stores have opened in the last two years displaying a variety of merchandise. The merchants are working together to set up events and activities to promote the downtown area. The Mineola residents are very proud of the downtown area’s history, the preservation of the historical buildings, and the existing businesses as seen in the hustle and bustle of people eating and shopping among friends.
Spread the word and keep the downtown area our special “Go To” shopping place; so much closer and a lot less traffic.
Owner of Count
