Celebrating Small Business Saturday

Stores and shops around the county celebrated Small Business Saturday over the weekend. They are part of the vast network of small businesses that offer a personal shopping experience to people. Christmas Trim-A- Tree Wonderland owner Gary Rice of Salem shows Lana and John Judy of Guilford Lake how to disassemble the flocked tree they just purchased. The Homestead Pools and Spas business at the corner of Depot and the bypass in Salem has been converted into this wonderland since 1975 growing every year to the over 80 styles of 150 trees now on display.
