MENA MAYOR GEORGE MCKEE signed the 8th Annual Pulse Multi-Media SHOP MENA FIRST proclamation. The campaign launched in 2010 by the Pulse is designed to remind holiday shoppers of the importance of shopping local. Each week from December 6 – 20, the Pulse will feature specials/promotions from local businesses along with a Holiday Shopping Guide. “We have wonderful businesses locally that provide many unique gifts and services… not to mention personalized service. We need to keep our dollars working for us locally,” said Pulse General Manager LeAnn Dilbeck. Front row L-R: Dilbeck, Mayor McKee Mark Hobson.
