As many small, family-owned businesses struggle to keep their doors open in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic, shopping local is more important now than ever! If you're like most people, the holidays might also be sneaking up on you — especially if you've been busy exploring Lewisburg homes for sale

Luckily, there are plenty of great local shops where you can find unique, last-minute holiday gifts. Here are a few we recommend.

  • Mercantile: 319 Market St., Lewisburg, PA 17837
    The Mercantile specializes in gift items that are fresh, fun, and functional! Here you'll find kitchen and dining items, women's clothing, jewelry, handcrafted purses, and more. This shop is a staple of downtown Lewisburg, and it has been a local favorite since 1981. 

    They also have a personal shopper on staff who will help you find all the gifts you need. You can take advantage of this service either through FaceTime or a socially-distanced in-person appointment. They'll beautifully wrap your gifts for you, and they offer curbside pickup, free local delivery, and shipping.

Holiday Home Sale - CENTURY 21 Mertz & Associates

The holiday season may not seem like the most ideal time to sell a home. After all, many people hunker down in place during the winter months, are too occupied with the holidays to think about preparing their homes for sale, or want to avoid the hassle of moving during the cold season. And with the coronavirus pandemic still affecting many aspects of our lives, this holiday season is going to be a strange one. If you had planned to sell your home by the end of 2020, you might be tempted to put those plans on hold until next year. However, our real estate agents have closely examined the current housing market conditions and believe home sales may be up this holiday season compared to years past.

  • Demand is Strong
    When states started shutting down in March, home buying and selling went dormant for a while. But since lockdown restrictions were loosened up, buyers made a strong comeback to the housing market. In fact, the summer saw record-breaking home sales when compared to last year. Traditionally, there are few real estate transactions in fall and winter than in the spring and summer. But this year looks solidly up, and the number of home sales during the holidays is expected to stay high compared with other years.
