More Pinedale Gift Ideas
by Dawn Ballou, Pinedale Online!
November 26, 2006

With the 12 inches of snow on the way, and the holiday season in full swing, we even more think shopping local is a great idea!

Local stores really appreciate the business over the holidays. If you can't shop in person and see something here you like, these businesses can take your order over the phone with a credit card. All offer gift certificates if you'd prefer to let your favorite someone pick out their own selection.

Many stores offer gift wrapping. If you don't want to hassle with boxing up and shipping your packages, take them over to Moosely Mailboxes on North Fremont Avenue and they will be happy to carefully package and ship your treasures off to your family and friends.

Happy Holidays!
