Shop Local for Mothers Day!

Spring is in full swing by mid-May in the Catskills and local stores have their doors wide open welcoming shoppers looking for the ideal gift to celebrate Mom’s special day. We asked area retailers to share their gift suggestions for shoppers who are looking for that perfect item that will make their Mother smile. Many of these businesses are run by Mothers so you’re doing double duty by shopping local!
