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.

One highlight of CrossFit's workout of the day is that almost anyone can do it. If that sounds hard to believe, look no further than CrossFit Southborough, where Fabiana O’Brien and her team of coaches schedule these functional workouts for kids, teens, adults, and seniors. The workouts generally comprise body-weight exercises like pull-ups, iron-pumping moves like dead lifts, and plyometric exercises like box jumps. For youngsters who are younger than the 5-year age limit, the gym also offers childcare services at select times.
