Abingdon Main Street has announced Necessities as its first designated Abingdon Main Street “Business Of The Month” for December, 2016. Located at 226 West Main Street in Abingdon, Necessities is a shop featuring local, international and specialty foods, gift baskets and local art.
“We are honored to serve the residents and visitors to Abingdon by offering international and specialty foods, over 80 teas, gifts, and local art. We appreciate our loyal customers that think shopping local is important,” says shop owner, Robin Ferrell.
The Abingdon Main Street “Business Of The Month” program began this month and will feature a different Main Street business each month. Necessities was selected as the first featured business as a result of winning the Abingdon Main Street holiday window display contest, as voted on by local residents and shoppers on December 10.
“We felt that as part of our organizational mission of showcasing our local businesses, we had an excellent opportunity to add another layer of promotion each month by developing this program,” says Jennifer Montgomery, Executive Director of Abingdon Main Street. “We’re excited about this effort and look forward to making a difference in raising awareness of what our downtown businesses have to offer.”
