From shops that have a year-round focus just on the holidays to the numerous specialty shops and boutiques that dot the main streets of Door County communities, there are more than enough shopping options to keep you busy this holiday season. Find out which businesses are open for the winter shopping season in this year’s Winter Guide.
While some choose to wake up early for Black Friday deals at the mall or big box store, more people are making the choice to shop local at independent, locally owned businesses. The one-of-a-kind businesses of Door County are part of the character that makes the region unique, and the best way to preserve that is to patronize them. Money spent locally benefits the community, providing jobs and increasing prosperity for everyone in the peninsula and islands. Plus it decreases the likelihood of giving someone a gift they’ve already received!
Door County merchants can meet any gift-giving need, including jewelry and other accessories, pet supplies, antiques, quilts, clothing, shoes, candles, coffee and tea, books, art, sporting goods, outdoor gear — and let’s not forget the food and wine gifts that can only come from Door County. Who wouldn’t love a jar of tart pie cherries, a box of rich chocolate truffles or a bottle of sweet cherry wine — or all of the above?
