The NE Broadway Business Association will sponsor their annual holiday Ladies Night Out this year on Thursday, December 10 from 5:00 to 9:00 p.m. Participating Broadway businesses will stay open late that evening to offer special deals and will provide drinks and snacks.
“It is always a great time for our customers,” said Katy Keys, co-owner of Trade Roots. “All the stores come together and everyone is in a very festive mood. Folks have a little wine, a cookie or two and everything is in walking distance.”
There should be something on sale to match anyone’s holiday list: clothing, jewelry, shoes, books, wine, furniture, gifts for the home, kitchen goods, holiday decor, fitness, childcare – and plenty for the pets on your list too.
“It’s a great opportunity to get together with friends and get that holiday shopping done early – while enjoying savings,” said Murray Koodish, president of the NE Broadway Business Association. “You can come early or stay late to take advantage of specials at your favorite restaurant or bar.”
Participating businesses will include Broadway Books, Broadway Floral Home and Garden, Footwise, Furever pets, Golden, Great Wine Buys, Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique, Iconic, Kitchen Kaboodle, Pastini Pastaria, pure barre Portland – Lloyd, Sofa Table Chair, soho boutique, Sweet Jayne, Timmco Insurance, Trade Roots and WeVillage.
“We’ve done it for four years now and it’s a wonderful time to grab a girlfriend and make an evening out of it,” said Susan Walter, owner of Sofa Table Chair.
You can bring the kids too. WeVillage is offering 25 percent off flexible childcare until 9:00 p.m. on the evening of Ladies Night Out for ages three through 12. Reservations are required. Contact WeVillage at (971) 302-6187 for details.
“Discover how Northeast Broadway offers everything for everyday,” said Koodish. “Shop local all through December at our great independent shops and you’ll find unique gifts, awesome customer service, a myriad of options for eating and drinking and services to take care of your every need – all conveniently located.”
