It's the most wonderful time of the year, and for most, that means time to spend some of your hard earned dollars on spreading some holiday cheer. This year we hope that you think about our local Windsor small businesses when you look for that perfect present. To help you navigate the local landscape, we have put together our own list of All Level approved businesses. Most of these businesses are either owned by one of our members or are a company that we do business with and can vouch for their awesome-ness. So without further fanfare, here is our little holiday shopping guide.
