A Holiday Letter from Longs'


 

As the 2021 Holiday Season arrives; we are very humble, happy, and grateful.

Our customers, clients, and neighbors have supported us for over 52 years.

It is an amazing privilege for our small business to work in and serve such an extraordinary community.

 

Together, we are making our way through an unprecedented stretch of challenges.

Since March of 2020, it has become clear that we are definitely able to adapt and learn new ways of doing things.

Who knew how many styles of facemasks would become a fashion statement?

Our leave-the-house routine is often: "House key, car keys, schoolbooks, wallet, cell phone, face mask…

ok, ready to go."

Restaurants have customers at the door, but too often they don't have any staff to serve them.

We see " Help Wanted" signs all around us, the supply chain is wildly challenged, some businesses did not survive,

but many did.

Working from home; some folks wore business clothes on top, pajama pants on the bottom, and still got the job done.

Students and teachers wanted to be back in the classroom more than they ever could have imagined.

Zoom talks with loved ones became routine, as well as tele-visits with doctors, lawyers, accountants, realtors,

and interviewers.

Drive-by parties allowed the Guest of Honor to watch excitedly from the sidewalk...

...as friends and family called out greetings, sang songs, and slipped gifts out of car windows.

Love endured with virtual weddings, private porch weddings, two-part weddings, and finally full guest list weddings.

We are trying hard to get the world back on track again, and we absolutely will.

We are safer, stronger, smarter, fabulously creative, and deeply appreciative.

 

Every day, Longs' will help you find just what you need for home and school and work and fun.

We have been working like crazy to stock our shelves with wonderful gifts for everyone on your shopping list.

We're busy helping Santa with fantastic ideas, beautiful clothes, and all of the wonderful books you could ever

dream of.

Do you have some hard-to-buy-for folks on your list?

Consider the comfort of a hammock with a cozy pillow, or maybe a new desk set for organizing things at home.

We have arts and crafts that bring fun and creativity to playtime, and well-built toys to last for generations.

Wrap up some games for children, teens, and adults.  Add in a holiday jigsaw puzzle for the whole family to figure

out together.

Shopping locally is indeed the lifeblood of a community and its economy, and it's more important now than

ever before.

 

Downtown will happily celebrate Star Shine again as the Christmas Tree on Main Street sparkles with lights,

Miss Penn Yan of 2019 crowns her successor, children find lots of new fun, and everyone welcomes

Mr & Mrs. Santa Clause
