Beginning this week, we’re running details you need to have so you can get to businesses taking part in the Shop the Village campaign.
Here we start with the 12 businesses that furnished prizes in this week’s drawing. Next week, we’ll have a listing of another 13 businesses and we’ll continue with the weekly listings throughout the campaign until we cover every business in the campaign.

Sahagian & Associates
124 Madison, 848-5552. We’re not listing hours, because this business is not a retail shop. The address is the office of a candy manufacturer and wholesaler that sells such sweets as licorice sticks, gumballs and caramel corn in bulk to stores and distributors. But this business is also a source of sweets for community fundraisers. So if you’re with a school, club or team looking for candy to sell, call to see what your local options.
