"When the economy fell apart in 2008, that's when we noticed people were starting to struggle. And it's been building up ever since then and so this is a normal volume of sales for the Christmas season."
David says the community has really stepped up when it comes to shopping locally.
and that post holiday sales have continued to draw in customers.
