During these hectic holiday seasons, Businesses need to make sure that if they are participating that they give what is expected to the customers when buying their goods. This has happened to people in my family and myself when trying to shop local and then them not giving out the vouchers, only to come home and see that you didn’t get one in your bag (or in some cases, should’ve gotten more than one).Experience Grants Pass 3 days ago Here are some live music options for you this weekend! ...
