Love Local

It’s been three and a half years since I started Cumming Local.  The mission was simple – to help our readers find things to do, places to go & small businesses to support – locally!  In the process we’ve come to know some really great businesses and we love getting to share them with you!   While an unexpected day off due to snow and ice may be nice, it can also be HARD on a local, small business.
Most stores will be opening back up this weekend, so we want to remind you (and so fitting on Valentine’s Day), to LOVE LOCAL.  Maybe you do that all year long or maybe this weekend is a great time to start.  Whichever may be the case let’s LOVE LOCAL this weekend and love local BIG.
We’ve made it easy by highlighting a round-up of activities and sales this Valentine Weekend, but definitely be sure to check out all that our current sponsors have going on right now too – they are the reason this website keeps going!
