Participating Gift Certificate Businesses

I am so glad things are doing so great in that Main street office. I am a former business owner in downtown LaCrosse, I operated Feminine Fancies in the Doerflinger building for some time, and my heart is still in downtown LaCrosse. I would like to comment on why I love the downtown as a nice place to do business and run a business. Downtown LaCrosse offers many diverse businesses, the customer service is like no other. Usually the owner is there giving that personal touch.....the merchandise is hand picked for the LaCrosse community and you will not see racks of the same dress, blouse, or jacket. Owners of private business or small boutiques will go to market and purchase inventory with a certain customer in mind. I love the downtown because people are friendly, helpful and you are remembered as a friend not just another number.......the businesses are unique and different from a cup of coffee, to kitchen gadgets, flowers, and many services, banks, lawyers, shoe repair, and many more.
