Happy Holidays from Bill’s Barber Shop Fine Family Hare Care

Why shop local? To me, it’s kind of like the TV show “Cheers.” You want to go where every one knows your name. I shop local not just for great products but also to stay in touch.Your community tells you when something is working and when something isn’t. In order for a town to succeed, community must exist. Without strong neighborhoods and a vibrant downtown, your area is just another place to live. Saline is very fortunate to have such a strong sense of community.

“When I got accepted into a PhD program at the University of Michigan, we moved from Iowa to Saline. Downtown Diner was one of the first local restaurants we went to. We were immediately impressed by the quality of the service and the food. The owners and staff made us feel like welcomed members of the Saline community, which meant so much being new to the area. They make the best eggs benedict I have ever had. You can tell they put a lot of love and hard work into making great dishes. A perfect example of this is the hand-sliced golden fried potato skins served instead of pre-packaged frozen fries.� Erin Thatcher and Brandon Ulrich (spotted at Downtown Diner)

“I moved to downtown Saline after college 2 years ago and have loved the experience! There is always something going on and I’m just a few steps away from multiple amazing restaurants. The fact that I can easily walk anywhere was a large part of my decision to live here.” Christine and Lauren Park
