This holiday season, make it a mission of yours to support local businesses in Iowa and throughout the Quad Cities. These businesses are the heart of our local economy and most are run by wonderful people who call our community home just like you do.

To give you some encouragement to shop local this holiday season, an eastern Iowa town is hosting a Holiday Open House with more than 20 participating businesses. This event is to help kick off the holiday season and to remind you to shop local during the holidays.
