CINCINNATI - Don’t forget local retailers on Cyber Monday. Many Tri-State small retailers and stores will be offering online deals and/or free shipping on your purchases.
One such store is King Arthur's Court Toy Store in Oakley, which will be offering a store-wide 15 percent discount on all purchases made online during Cyber Monday.
"Our online sales are about 20 percent of our business, so it's become a big part," store owner Miles Altman said. "We've made a big move to that in the last few years and our Small Business Saturday was one of our biggest days in history, so we have people shopping local."
The store claims everything that can be purchased in the store is also available on its website.
Altman says expanding his business online has allowed him to extend his sales reach across the country and even the world. He says a growing number of his regular customers have never even stepped food inside the store and have only ordered toys online.
Many downtown Cincinnati merchants have also gone online in recent years. A number of these retailers can be found through Downtown Cincinnati, Inc. , which offers links to the retailers’ websites.
