While out shopping this holiday season, keep Muskingum County in mind.

The Chamber of Commerce wants to encourage holiday shoppers still out looking for Christmas gifts to not forget all the unique gifts the entire county has to offer. 

"You can travel national road east and hit a lot of the great specialty stores the strip malls, the Maple Avenue area and we are certainly known for our pottery and our other unique items," said Kelly Ashby of the Zanesville-Muskingum County Chamber of Commerce.

Shoppers should also keep in mind, coupons for show tickets and admission to local attractions are also a great Christmas gift. Besides the unique gifts, shopping local provides a major boost to the county economy.

"The economic impact is huge so we certainly encourage people to shop locally, buy locally and we are also promoting to our region to come into Muskingum County and shop here for the holiday season," said Ashby.

Stop by the Chamber of Commerce and pick up a buyers guide to help decide which shops to visit
