Local businesses urge shoppers to buy local for Christmas


NEW HARTFORD, N.Y. (WKTV) - Christmas is just a few days away, and local stores are looking to capitalize on the final holiday shopping rush.

For shoppers looking for a last minute holiday gift, many local stores are offering different locally made products to keep money within the area as the season hits full stride.

Places such as Marcy Discount Beverage, and Bremer's Wine and Liquors are offering a wide variety of locally made spirits to entice last minute shoppers to support their area, even if they are no longer living here.

"We have people who come back to visit home this time of year, and they like to bring back a little piece of Utica with them to different states," said Rhonda Carter of Bremer's Wine & Liquor.

For those still looking to find that perfect gift this holiday season, there are still plenty of options out there in the Greater Utica area to find just what you are looking for.
