Though it seems we just got started, it’s now down to the final two weeks before Christmas.
How did that happen?
It’s so true time flies and that means it’s cutting it close to do your Christmas shopping. Main Street Elizabethton has got you covered — along with well-known, well-loved businesses right here in town.
“With less than two weeks until Christmas, this Saturday is the perfect time to avoid the big box store crowds and enjoy a nice experience in our welcoming and historic downtown,” said Courtney Bean, Main Street’s director. “You can support local and complete your holiday shopping, all at one event!”
That’s convenience for you and great for local businesses. This new event this season is meant to help everyone involved — shoppers, local businesses and present recipients wanting that special something.
Main Street Elizabethton’s “Holiday Wrap-Up” is planned for Saturday, Dec. 17, to help you check off your Christmas list locally downtown. From 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., the following participating businesses will await your presence so they might help you in buying presents:
