Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot will visit small businesses in Glyndon on Thursday to encourage Marylanders to shop locally for the holidays.
Maryland Comptroller Peter Franchot will do a tour of small business in Glyndon this Thursday in an effort to encourage Marylanders to shop locally this holiday season. “Shopping locally puts citizens’ hard earned money back into their communities and also support local businesses and the more than 500,000 hard-working Maryland retail employees,” according to a press release. Franchot will be joined by local elected officials, Patrick Donoho, president of the Maryland Retailers Association, and Brian Ditto, executive director of the Reisterstown-Owings Mills-Glyndon Chamber of Commerce. Franchot’s visit starts at noon at Santoni’s, and he will make his way to The Boxwood Collection, The Wine Post and several other shops.
