South Shore Macaroni Kid's focus has always been providing hyper-local e-newsletters and a website featuring events, activities, products and places for parents, kids and families. If you have been following Macaroni Kid for a while, you know we always promote SHOPPING LOCAL! Why? Because we too are a small business, run locally by a mom living right here on the South Shore, so we know the importance of supporting other local small businesses.
