With less than a week of shopping left before Christmas, time is running out to purchase presents for our loved ones this holiday season. Director of the Pella Chamber of Commerce Karen Eischen tells KNIA/KRLS News that it’s very important to shop local. She adds that if you don’t know what to get someone for Christmas, Pella Bucks make a great gift because they keep the local money in the community. Studies show that when you purchase something in the community, that money circulates seven times.
