MINT HILL, NC – One of the year’s most romantic holidays is right around the corner. Valentine’s Day is typically a day that is spent with the ones you love most. Many couples choose to enjoy a night on the town. But on February 14, 2021, we will celebrate the first Valentine’s Day during the COVID-19 pandemic. COVID-19 may mean changing your Valentine’s Day plans, but there are still plenty of ways to shop and dine locally this year!

Living in a small town that is full of wonderful people and businesses has its advantages, especially when it comes time for holidays. Shopping at a small local business helps support the local community and allows many people to be able to purchase a more personalized gift. A gift for such a special holiday from a local business supports more resources than the big box stores. This is especially the case when you are speaking about the experience of shopping in-store as well. They are able to offer a more personalized experience making it a whole different shopping experience altogether. Many of the local businesses around the town of Mint Hill are open for Valentine’s Day and would love the support of their local patrons.
