"I'm very passionate about promoting local businesses," said Missy McCall, owner of Boxed GR. "I'm proud to offer a unique and very affordable way for businesses to market their products and services."
The Local Treasure Holiday Box is part of Local First's Discover Your Local Treasure initiative, which brings community awareness to local businesses that make our place unique. During the holiday season, Local First encourages shoppers to make their purchases at local businesses.
"Heard of Birchbox or Conscious Box? This is the way to try (or gift!) some local favorites," said Elissa Hillary, Executive Director of Local First. "We'll take the work out of it by curating some of our favorites. Introduce yourself (or your friends/teachers/family) to local this season!"
