Get your Christmas shopping started and meet the owners of several locally-owned businesses on Sunday, Dec. 9, 2012 at the Local First Mansfield “One Stop Shop.”
This event, organized by the Mansfield Downtown Partnership and the Town of Mansfield, is open from noon to 4 p.m. at the Mansfield Community Center on South Eagleville Road (Route 275).
The “One Stop Shop” will include businesses that don’t have a traditional storefront, as well as those with “brick and mortar” stores.
Scavenger Hunt participants also can bring their cards to the One Stop Shop to enter a drawing for prizes.
All “One Stop Shop” attendees will receive an entry for the drawing. Scavenger Hunt participants will receive additional entries based on the number of businesses they successfully found.
The goal of Local First Mansfield is to encourage residents to support the many and diverse locally‐owned businesses in Storrs-Mansfield.
Look for the Local First Mansfield posters in participating businesses. You also can visit the Town Web site at www.mansfieldct.gov and click on “Business” for a list of participants – and check back often, as more join.
If you are a Mansfield business owner interested in being a part of Local First Mansfield, please call the Mansfield Downtown Partnership office at 860-429-2740 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org There is no fee to participate.
