Montrose… the quaint little town you usually see when on vacation and we have it right here. We are blessed to have this unique small town feel alive in this day and age. We have to do our part and that means supporting these small business owners to keep them in this town. We have just about everything you can ask for right here in Montrose. Why hassle the traffic and drive anywhere else when you can probably walk to most of what you need right here. We have a wide variety of businesses and how cool is it to walk in and they acknowledge you by your name? Yes, I know it is hard right now and every penny you spend is well thought out, but keep your money in your town and it will come back to you. Many businesses are struggling to stay open, not just here but everywhere so please do your part. You probably don’t know all that this little small town has to offer so come by the Chamber and pick up some directories for friends and family. Even one person can make a difference. Montrose has so much to offer and everyone feels good when they visit us. The holidays are coming and our lives get really busy so keep it close to your heart. Fall back on Saturday, Oct. 31: set your clocks back one hour.
