Keeping it Local!

By Michelle Schumacher | Dec 26, 2013

Shopping local is one of the best things we can do as a community and Haywood County is no different.  Mountaineer Publishing has been promoting local during the Holiday Season of Gift Giving. We have two upcoming events that are specifically designed to shine the light of local spending.

In January, The Mountaineer will be announcing the Haywood County businesses that that placed in the top 3 of our Readers Choice Awards.  This annual tradition asks readers to fill out a ballot and drop it off at The Mountaineer.  After tabulating hundreds of ballots, the winners have been determined and a special interest publication will be in The Mountaineer in January.

On April 5th the 3rd annual Blue Ridge Bridal Event will be held at Shackford Hall, Lake Junluska (10 am - 3 pm).  Having a local business involved in your wedding is sure to make your wedding a memorable experience. Getting someone to give your event a personal touch is sure to happen when they are a part of the community you live in.  From bridal gowns, cake, weight loss plans, to beautiful venues, travel agents, and jewelry the Blue Ridge Bridal Event will be something to see.

Planning a party, vacation?  Shopping for a birthday gift? Even if you are not in the planning stages of a wedding, please stop by.  The event is free and will have something for everyone.
