Shoptauqua Week begins Monday

Fredonia Mayor Stephen Keefe has released a proclamation for “Shoptauqua Week,” which will begin Monday and will conclude Dec. 1.

Shoptauqua Week provides a time to support locally owned and operated businesses. The village hall will fly the Shoptauqua Week banner during that week.

“The health and well being of our local economy depends upon our support of our friends and neighbors who own and operate those businesses,” the proclamation reads. “Many items on your Christmas shopping lists can be found in the businesses downtown, and … our local businesses are here year ’round and offer quality products and friendly service.”
