November Already!

Even though we've seen holiday decor as early as Labor Day and I've already heard my first Christmas carols of the season, if you are like me, holiday shopping starts this month. Won't you join me in considering local options first? Small businesses, especially those on Broadway enduring continuing construction nightmares, need our support to remain open year-round. If you prefer online shopping, many have websites for your convenience. Broadway Newport's new website offers a complete merchant list, links, parking options and more.

Without our locally owned shops, restaurants and service providers, our retail landscape would be reduced to strip malls, box stores and tourist traps-- that's not the Newport that I want to live in, how about you?  

Happy Thanksgiving!
