With the Christmas shopping season kicking off tomorrow, Lafayette Mayor-President Josh Guillory wants to remind everyone to buy local whenever possible.

"Our local, family-owned businesses are the foundation of our economy," Guillory stated on his public figure Facebook page. "The tax revenues from the sales of those businesses support everything in our city and parish from law enforcement and public safety, to our schools and public facilities. With COVID easing, everyone is eager to get out, see and do things, and start projects. Let's take this opportunity to boost our community and the businesses who serve all of us here in Lafayette Parish."
