If you have some holiday shopping left to do, one local boutique will give a special discount if you help out those in need this season.

Duo, right around the corner from Starbucks on the corner, sells new and lightly used clothing. For the third year in a row, they're having their own food drive and will donate to the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank.

"Especially with the current economy, a lot of people are in need and I feel like the food bank is under pressure so why not help out those in need and get a little bit of a discount on a new holiday dress or gift for a friend," said Duo owner, Greer Johnson.

Duo is giving 20% off everything in the store if you bring in something for the food drive. The last day will be the 23rd.
