If you were out Saturday night, March 24th – you most likely saw a lot of women, shopping bags and pink. The Promotion
committee of Discover Phillipsburg Main Street hosted a Girl’s Night Out downtown and asked retailers to be open late from 4:30 to 8:30 p.m. and invited home based businesses to join them! The event brought over 150 women to downtown Phillipsburg. “Ladies Night Out was reminiscent of days gone by when people would come to town on Saturday night to do their shopping. They’d run into friends and neighbors they’d not seen for awhile and just stop and chat for a bit. It was great!,” says Bobbi Delzer of Sawyer’s Ace Hardware.
Following the event, we invited everyone to stop by the Bakery from 8:00 to 9:30 p.m. to have their receipts tallied, draw for a door prize, grab a glass of wine and “wine’d down”. Congratulations to Donna Winchell and Sally Thomas for being our top shoppers during the event. They each won a bag of gift certificates and goodies, donated by our retailers worth $150 each. Brandy Christy’s name was drawn to win $75 in gift certificates, also donated by our retailers. Over 15 door prizes which were provided by home based businesses were given away to the shoppers during the Wine’d Down event. Thank you to everyone who came out to shop and a big thank you to our retail and home based businesses!
