Abingdon Main Street is hosting its first “Holidays On Main” holiday shopping celebration on Saturday, December 10, 2017 in Abingdon’s Main Street footprint. The day will feature shopping deals, refreshments and a holiday window display contest.
Shoppers can vote for their favorite holiday window display, and the business who garners the most votes will be named as the inaugural Abingdon Business of the Month in a program introduced by Abingdon Main Street.
Additionally, the organization will officially roll out an Abingdon-specific smartphone app and will invite the public to join in on that day. The public introduction of this app on December 10 will make Abingdon only the second town in the Commonwealth of Virginia to launch this interactive, educational addition to smartphone activities.
Abingdon’s businesses that will be participating in the activities for “Holidays On Main” include Abingdon Merchantile & Frame Gallery, Forget-Me-Not, Jerroleens Shed, Goodman Jewelers, Greer Jewelers, Necessities, Shady Business, and The Candy Shed.
