Easton, Cambridge Among Comptroller Franchot's Shop Local Business Tour

Posted:
ANNAPOLIS, Md. - Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot is launching a statewide tour to promote local businesses this holiday shopping season.  He plans to make stops in both Talbot and Dorchester County to encourage residents to "Shop Maryland for the Holidays." 

"Holiday time is about being with good friends, family and the communities we call home. What better way to promote holiday cheer and goodwill than shopping in the many terrific local shops and businesses in the places we live," Comptroller Franchot said.

The Maryland Retailers Association says this holiday is important to retailers in communities throughout Maryland.

"Retailers depend on shoppers during the holidays. It is their busiest time of year," said Patrick Donoho, president of the Maryland Retailers Association. "Retailers appreciate the support and give back throughout the year by supporting local activities, providing employment and paying taxes."

Franchot will be stopping in Easton and Cambridge as he kicks off his statewide tour. In past years, the Comptroller has also shopped in Salisbury.

Comptroller Franchot reminds shoppers in-state shopping puts citizens' hard earned money back into their communities and supports local businesses that employ friends and neighbors.
