Christmas Shopping in South Pittsburg

Maybe you’re looking for a toy. Or, perhaps a new pair of pants is on your wish list. No matter your gift of choice, there isn’t much time left to get the perfect one for the holiday.

“It’s the wrapping, the hurrying and getting in the spirit the last few days. Trying to get it done,” says Justin Nunley, a last-minute Christmas shopper.

Nunley shops in South Pittsburg’s downtown. It’s a stretch of local businesses such as antique shops, clothing stores and restaurants. Nunley says, though larger retailers have good buys, people shouldn’t forget about their local business owners.

“Keep the smaller market alive. The bigger market is expanding more. and we’re losing more of our smaller markets, businesses,” he says.

And true enough, South Pittsburg has its share of empty storefronts. Sheryl Hornton of South Pittsburg Antiques knows that full well.

“At Christmas, it would be nice for the family and the community to continue to be supportive,” she says while mentioning that their sales are down.
