LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- There's always a push to shop local, but it's especially important this time of year.
Many people are looking for that unique gift you won't find anywhere else. That's why people packed our neighborhoods from NULU to the Highlands.
"It's just the time when everyone's out looking for the perfect gift for someone," said Garwood Linton, owner of Red Tree.
You'll find them sifting through shirts, shoes, and shiny trinkets trying to find the perfect present.
It's the busiest time of year for these shops, but also the most rewarding.
"The whole push to support local and small businesses has improved over the past three years, I think this has been the best year so far," said Alicia Savender, owner of Hey Tiger.
These stores are ready for the rush. Each year they see more people, as the secret to shop local spreads.
"It's definitely a great idea there are so many wonderful local stores all throughout Louisville that you'd be missing out if you didn't find a great gift here," said Emilie Shapero, an employee at Dot Fox.
A recent study of Louisville area business shows that for everyone $100 you spend at an independent store, $55 is reinvested locally.
