Imagine your neighborhood or city without any of its small, local businesses. Coffee shops, hair and nail salons, corner stores, boutique clothing stores, consignment shops, restaurants, bars, craft shops, markets, antique and repair shops, laundromats, liquor shops, gift shops, pet stores, and more – all gone. The pandemic is devastating small business and this could mean closing the businesses they’ve sacrificed so much to build. But, you can help. When we lift up a small business, we lift up a community. Studies show that 48% of small business purchases are recirculated locally, compared to only 14% by chain stores. Every dollar you spend could help save a small business. Please shop from Merchantville's small businesses. Small businesses off better customer service and give back to our community. Many offer online and in-store options, take-out and gift cards, and most ship nationally. There’s something for everyone!
After 40 years in banking, Donna Russo Gallagher's life-long dream was to start a thrift shop and, fortunately for Merchantville, that dream - Twisted Middle Sister Thrift - came true right here on June 27th. Donna's shop offers an eclectic mix of vintage knick-knacks, jewelry, home and personal accessories, furnishings, clothing, art - and for that avid fisherman - some poles and lures! Call (856) 571-1023 for hours so you can take a first hand look at all her goodies
