Photo: Merchants in Gloucester and Mathews counties took part in Saturday’s Shop Local Day promotion. The event, which was sponsored by Chesapeake Bank, was an attempt to encourage residents and visitors to take advantage of the selection and service offered by local independent stores. Luckily for these four ladies visiting from the Richmond area—Cindy Smith, Carol Duke, Kathi Williams and Barbara Garfinkel, from left—the promotion was held the same day as the Garden Week tour, and they were able to get a 20 percent discount on this painting of a sailboat at Cattail’s in Mathews.
