People will spend more than $586 billion on holiday shopping this year, according to the National Retail Federation, and they have a lot of options as to where they spend that money.
Patch wants help spread the word about local merchants to nearby communities, so we're setting up an Ellicott City Holiday Shopping Guide to send to Patch sites around the region.
Merchants, this is where you come in.
Why someone should drive 30 minutes to spend the day shopping in Ellicott City?
- What unique gifts do you offer that can't be found anywhere else?
- What do you think makes Ellicott City, and its merchants, special?
- Which shops/restaurants do you think are must-visit destinations in Ellicott City?
Leave a note in the comments letting us know who your are, where your business is, (if applicable), and your answers.
Merchants, upload pictures of your unique wares by clicking "Upload photos and videos."
We'll put together a guide and send it across the region -- and we'll share guides from other communities too.
Then, let the shopping begin.
