When attending Thanksgiving dinner you’re always faced with the difficult decision of what to make for the big feast. Do you stick to the same old boring side dish made from a box or rely on your mom to pull through and save the whole meal? This year, take matters into your own hands and bring a dish from your favorite local Mt. Pleasant business to your Thanksgiving feast. Below are just a few examples of amazing local places in Mt. Pleasant that you can support. 

With the holiday season coming up, Robaire’s is ready to fill your bakery needs. With fresh homemade rolls and a selection of delicious pies, you will be ready to share your love of Robaire’s with the entire family. With fresh ingredients and made in a traditional style, pie flavors include apple, pumpkin, cherry, blueberry, peach, pecan, strawberry and rhubarb.

Instead of buying a frozen turkey this year, make sure to buy a fresh turkey from Smith & Sons in Mt. Pleasant. Smith & Sons is locally owned and offers everything from fresh meat and cheeses to homemade items. To ensure you get the perfect sized turkey you desire for Thanksgiving, the workers at Smith & Sons suggest you call and preorder by Nov. 17.
