We are the real deal, an authentic small town kept alive as the place you love because of you.
Treat yourself to our crowd-pleasing holiday open house the two days following Thanksgiving. You're sure to find something special for everyone on your list!
No Matter What, You're a Winner!
You win by enjoying our festive ambiance, holiday treats, terrific shopping, and customer service during the Christmas Walk. Our businesses will also show their gratitude by offering chances to win prizes valued at $25 or more, including an exciting grand prize! The more participating businesses you visit that day, the more chances you have to win. Check out the window of Cleves and Lonnemann Jewelers at 319 Fairfield Avenue to see all the awesome prizes - one or more of them may be yours!
We Want to Celebrate Small Business Saturday with You!
Small businesses drive the US economy and provide an authentic sense of place the mass retailers cannot. By shopping local independent businesses you receive unique offerings and exceptional service, all while keeping dollars reinvested locally instead of at far-away corporate headquarters. It is YOU that can help small locally owned businesses compete against the corporate businesses with huge advertising budgets, and help historic downtowns you love thrive.
On Saturday, look for IN VUE volunteers handing out cool Shop Small swag from American Express in front of Bella on the Avenue at 341 Fairfield Avenue.
