Fall is the season for book lovers. Is there anything nicer than curling up with a cup of hot cocoa and being comforted by words from your favorite author, or possibly being enticed by a new mystery? While online retailers will be there for you no matter the season, it’s still warm enough to actively get outside and support your local businesses.
We, here at Montgomeryville Nissan, believe in lifting up the community whenever possible. That means buying our things from local retailers rather than big, impersonal, online businesses, whenever we can.
