It’s not too early to start shopping for your Thanksgiving desserts. Many shops sell out in advance so it’s a smart move to place a pre-order whenever the option is available.

Here are a few local bakeries to consider so you’re not stuck waiting in line at Costco for a generic Pumpkin Pie.

Beiler’s / Lancaster Dutch Market – Germantown
In the week leading up to Thanksgiving, Beiler’s sells over 3,000 Pumpkin and Pecan Pies.

 2. How has it been working at Well-Paid Maids?

Karen: I feel very appreciated at the company. This is the first job where I feel I'm able to speak about any issue and that management will support me.

 3. How has working at Well-Paid Maids benefitted you?

Karen: Because Well-Paid Maids pays a living wage, I can now spend more time with my kids and not work double shifts like I did at my old job.

Karen: I look forward to traveling to El Salvador to visit my family there.
