VERMILION - The Vermilion Economic Development Alliance (VEDA) is askingresidents of Vermilion to shop close to home this holiday season.

“We have so many wonderful and diverse businesses in our community,” says Executive Director Anne Falgout, “You don’t have to travel far to get unique giftsand unmatched customer service.”For the last several years VEDA has been encouraging shoppers to skip the rush of Black Friday and opt for Small Business Saturday instead.
