We call our readersâ€™ attention to an opinion piece by Winthrop resident and PBS producer Niki Vettel in this weekâ€™s Sun Transcript about shopping in Winthrop for the holidays.
We couldnâ€™t agree more with Vettel that there are some wonderful stores in Winthrop and great gifts to find in them for the holiday season. What a warm feeling for shoppers when they enter the store and recognize the owner as being a Winthrop person. Moreover, there are so many diverse businesses in the town that any personâ€™s gift list can be satisfied.
Our former publisher, Andrew P. Quigley, coined the term: â€œBuy in, and build, Winthropâ€ to sum up the reason why it makes sense to support our local business community.
We urge our readers to read Ms. Vettelâ€™s piece and heed her advice: Winthrop is a great place to shop.
