Heart of the Village Holiday Shopping Open House Promises to be a Fun Event for Everyone!
Zionsville Merchants Spearhead Event
November 16 & 17th
Our Zionsville merchants have come together to bring a unique shopping experience to our town called "Zionsville's Heart of the Village". This event will highlight the wonderful shops we have right in downtown Zionsville. Thirty two merchants will be offering different in-store promotions, which will make the shopping experience even more fun! "Heart of the Village" in downtown Zionsville is happening this Friday and Saturday!
“We wanted to do something out of the box. If we, as merchants, didn’t take the initiative, it wasn’t going to happen,” says co-organizer Steve Schwartz, owner of the popular children's boutique, Ballerinas and Bruisers. “We talked about doing something like this for a couple of years, but our inspiration came after Fashion Night Out, which we put together in three days. It put a fire in us to say, ‘What’s next’?” says Schwartz.
Zionsville's merchants will be teaming up to make this a Premier Event in town.“It’s not unusual for stores to cross promote and help each other. It makes it easy and cost effective for small business owners to come together and pool our resources to create something larger,”says co-organizer, Lesley Jane Hunt owner of Lesley Jane womens' fashion store and boutique . “It’s good to be able to work together. I hope we can do more of these events like Heart of the Village.”
With the holiday season right around the corner, this weekend should get shoppers in more of a holiday frame of mind. “This event will kick-off the holiday season and promote the well being of the town. Hopefully, it will become an annual event,”says co-organizer, Drew Kogan, who's antique business has been on Main Street for over 40 years!
“We get a lot of one-of-a-kind items and people come in early for them,” says Kogan. “This year we will have unique Christmas items and wreath orders available at the open house.”
