Photos: Great gifts can be found at local shops
Here's your challenge for your next holiday shopping excursion: Stop into at least three locally owned businesses and see what they have to offer.
Local business owners are your family members, friends, neighbors and biggest boosters of our community. When you support them, you're really supporting yourself.
You can also find great gifts, affordable prices and get great service to boot.

BTW: I had an interesting conversation with Fisher last night. He pretty much exploded the myth that chains are less expensive than locally owned stores. He said his prices are consistently lower than chain sporting goods stores in the area, especially for coaches looking to outfit teams, but even on licensed products such as Bills and Sabres jerseys.
I'll tell you what Mr. Fisher I'll buy all of my sporting good related needs at your store if in the next picture you have on The Batavian you hold up a Red Sox jersey instead! ;)
Where is Fisher sports...I would shop there..Don't know were it is...
Good question Mark.
They run an ad on the site. Look at it. :)
It's on the East end of the small plaza w/ Dollar General, next to Car Quest.
