We’re back with our fourth gift guide! Hope you have been enjoying our Holiday Gift Guide this year. This year, shopping local is more important than ever before. If you like to give gift cards or want a holiday meal, consider a local restaurant or shop, before they close their doors forever. Many stores will do whatever it takes to make your holiday shopping easy, whether that’s a private appointment or delivery, just ask them! It’s easy to shop small! We’ve added some more coffee festival items to the CU Store! The 2020 Holiday Gift Guide is presented by Short North Dental. When it comes to your smile, details matter! Visit Short North Dental at 15 E. Hubbard Avenue.
