NILES - Don't forget downtown Niles.
With just four shopping days left until Christmas, downtown Niles merchants urge shoppers to head their way to pick up those few last-minute gifts at the great variety of merchants in the downtown district.
Grzegorek said the only items they have run out of at Majerek's this year are the promotions from Hallmark and that's because the company has none left in their warehouses.
Veni Sweet Shop is also having a great holiday season.
Marazita said the community has been very supportive of the store and its traditional holiday offerings like turtles, anise, peanut brittle and toffee.
This year has been a bit different for Roncari-Thayer Jewelers as they have seen the number of customer orders they have made go up but the actual number of sales hasn't.
