Reprint of article in Springville Times: A Very Merry Main Street
Shop small. Support local. Come join downtown Springville on Black Friday, November 24 from 10am-5pm and Small Business Saturday, November 25 from 10am-4pm for another festive weekend with friends, food, shopping, and prizes at A Very Merry Main Street.
Sure you can spend your time fighting the long lines at the department stores, but close to home your friends and neighbors who own small businesses are opening their doors and providing special deals for their customers that you will only find over Thanksgiving weekend.
“It’s important to have a strong downtown and this helps get people excited for a fun event with lots of goodies at various locations, seeing friends and neighbors and a chance to support local.” said Elise Rose from Sheret Jewelers. “If it weren’t for the people in our community none of us would be here, we are very thankful for each and everyone that supports these businesses.”
In addition to getting gifts checked off your list, shoppers who participate in A Very Merry Main Street have a chance to win prizes from the local merchants during this event. This year instead of doing a stamp card, there will be a chance to enter a grand prize drawing of $300 at every location and vendor. Each vendor and business also will have a flyer announcing participating businesses promotions/special events for the weekend.
Local merchants that are not located on Main Street will be set up inside Love Inc, Concord Land Realty, Locals Lifestyle, Sheret Jewelers and the Lucy Bensley Center offering a wider variety of local goodness to choose from this season.
