With the holiday season now in full swing it is not uncommon for area residents to travel hours away or browse countless internet sites in search of sales to complete their Christmas shopping. There used to be a time though when people could find nearly everything on their Christmas list while shopping in town or in one of the surrounding communities.
The Daily Press recently asked followers on our Facebook page to share some of their favorite local holiday shopping memories.
