Everything South City is BIG on supporting our local small businesses and the holiday season allows us the opportunities to show our appreciation to them. With so much online ordering, which continues to grow, just think what it would be like if YOUR favorite local small business was no longer here…..! Think of a few businesses and get out to support them with your shopping this season.

What great local businesses offer gift cards, was the question we posed on our Facebook page, and below is a sampling of favorites shared, along with contact info we have added. Please share this list, it will help gift givers, recipients, and our local businesses! Win/Win/Win!


These received numerous thumbs up, favorites of many, tried and true- great gifts for you!
