If you’re going to head out on Black Friday, you might as well do it in style. If you’ve never owned a small business before, then you might not know how much these business owners count on you. Supporting a small business on Elmwood (or anywhere else for that matter) keeps your hard earned dollars in the community. Your support also helps to strengthen the businesses, which ultimately goes to supporting the owners and employees, all of whom live in our community.

On Friday, November 28, 2014, the Elmwood Village Association (EVA) will host its fourth annual Black Friday Boutique Crawl. It’s the perfect time to get your friends and family out onto the street, to grab something to eat and do a bit of holiday shopping. The street is not a frenzied mess like the malls… rather it is an electrified day filled with season’s cheer, fresh air, and an unparalleled shopping setting.
To make Black Friday even more fun-filled and rewarding, the EVA is giving out punchcards that can be brought into participating shops from 9am to noon (this is for the early birds), who can then enter to win a number of gift baskets. Shoppers need to get their cards stamped at a minimum of ten shops to qualify for the drawings.
Prizes can be viewed on the Elmwood Village Association Facebook page.
