“The money you spend in Waconia stays in Waconia and does so much good, thanks to our giving business community,” Sites continued. “If you have ever been part of an organization that has asked for donations, sponsorships, silent auction items, etc., then you understand this! Shopping local is not just a ‘feel good’ slogan, it’s critical to the success of our businesses and our community. Thanks to our businesses for your support of Waconia and thanks to you, for shopping Waconia first!”
