Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

Candi Nail Salon
Color is key at Candi Nail Salon. Whether it's the salon's rows of more than 700 gel polish colors on display or its pink walls and accent furniture, the space introduces itself in vivid color and suggests colorful transformations to be had. This comes by way of manicures and pedicures gussied up with rhinestone designs and 3D embossing, but the design is just the end product. Before the polishing begins, nail technicians dote upon clients with relaxing treatments such as hot stone foot massages, which soothe tension in the muscles and reward the feet for carrying the weight of the whole body, plus the spare brain we keep in case of emergency.
