A number of downtown businesses decided to take up the Cider Monday cause in response to the more widespread Cyber Monday, a day that sees a surge in shopping online. Cider Monday emphasizes the point that small businesses and the community benefit more from people going out to shop at local retailers, rather than sitting at their computers.

Plus, this week you would have received charming smiles and tasty hot apple cider.
