Holiday Shoppers Earn Extra Hours

Jill Stone...the dynamo who heads up St. Joseph Today has accomplished a Herculean task in lining up a substantial number of downtown retail merchants who have all agreed to extended shopping hours during the holiday season.  It's a job that most of her predeccesors had marginal success with.  The Executive Director, however, has done many, many things to brighten the mood, attitude and collaborative spirit of the diverse community of retailers, service providers, and hospitality-oriented businesses on the scene.

She wants to assure you that your Christmas Gift List has every possibility of being checked off in a timely manner without ever leaving the central business district.  With the huge Luminary Festival taking place this Friday evening, November 22nd, the Live Mannequin Showcase, Light Up the Bluff event and Reindog Parade all coming on the weekend of December 6th and 7th and a whole lot more activity in the works you will be hard-pressed to ignore the opportunities to visit your hometown merchants in the weeks ahead.
