Pike and Pint Grill
“As a restaurant, we are not as directly impacted by online shopping as other businesses. However, we are aware that local residents can drive to hundreds of restaurants less than an hour away. We appreciate that Alexandria is a dynamic community with great dining options. As a locally owned business, we do our best to buy as much local as we can. We also need to support our schools and local charities to help enrich the lives of our youth and those less fortunate. Keep it local, Alexandria!”
Gardonville Cooperative Telephone Association
“We love the communities we serve! Improving quality of life by delivering advanced telecommunication services to our customers has been the mission of Gardonville since we started. But, without the patronage of local residents and businesses, we're just a phone and internet company with no one to serve! We're proud to serve you and give back to this community whenever we can.”
Potomac Bead Company
“We've always believed in shopping locally and are excited to see it being promoted in Douglas County. Not only does it support our local communities, it gives people a chance to get to know their neighbors.”
Winning Edge Graphics, Inc.
