Keeping Spirits Bright and Merry in Downtown
Downtown Rock Springs is where the holiday fun and shopping begins.
The second annual Plaid Friday will take place on Friday, November 27. Shoppers can kick off the holiday season with free giveaways and great specials throughout Downtown. One hundred plaid bags will be handed out at Escape Day Spa, 420 Broadway Street, 9 am. Some of them will have valuable gift certificates.
Small Business Saturday is Saturday, November 28. Watch for free giveaways and specials. The first 100 shoppers in the door at Mack and Co Boutique, 623 Pilot Butte Avenue, at 11 am will receive a special Christmas stocking filled with goodies and a gift certificate.
For unique gifts, go to the Christmas Gift Show on Friday, November 27 and Saturday, November 28, 10 am to 4 pm in Bunning Hall, 603 South Main Street.
“Don’t forget, Downtown has gifts for nearly everyone on your list,” Chad Banks, URA Manager said. Support your own, shop at home.
This year, the Rock Springs Main Street/Urban Renewal Agency would like shoppers to take the Mayor’s Challenge – pledge to support local businesses at least five times during the holiday season, either by purchasing gifts, dining or participating in local holiday events.
“Out of every dollar spent in a local business, sixty-eight cents will be returned to our community,” Banks shared. “It fuels our local economies and contributes to more vibrant neighborhoods.”
