Greensburg Ladies Night will be shopping fun for everyone

Downtown Greensburg merchants will offer specials during the Nov. 13 Ladies Night shopping event. Kevin Miscik, owner of Lapels A Fine Mens Clothier on South Pennsylvania Avenue, is shown greeting customer Donna Guarlotti with a kiss on the cheek in this 2016 photo.

Ladies Night in downtown Greensburg is not just for the ladies, says chairwoman Ashley Stevens.

The special shopping event was given the name when it began “decades ago,” Stevens says, but “it’s a great night for shopping with your kids, your friends, your husbands, really everyone.”

Downtown merchants will keep the doors open late from 5 to 9 p.m. Nov. 13 for the event hosted by the Greensburg Business and Professional Association.

“All the participating stores will have great discounts, and most of them will have a no-purchase-necessary gift giveaway,” Stevens says. Many of those deals will be available during regular store hours that day, also.

Performers from Stage Right! will stroll the streets, making frequent stops to preview scenes from their musical production, “Newsies,” running Nov. 22-24 in The Palace Theatre.

“There will be a lot going on,” she promises.


Shoppers can pick up a “MUST STOP” punch card at a participating business or The Palace. Having the card punched at each business listed on the card qualifies the holder for one of two grand prizes — overnight stays at Seven Springs Mountain Resort and Mountaineer Casino, Racetrack and Resort.

Participating merchants on Main Street, South Maple Avenue, South Pennsylvania Avenue and West Second Street will display a “MUST STOP” sign.

Cards will be turned in at the Greensburg Hempfield Area Library, where the drawing and a basket raffle will be held. Basket raffle proceeds will benefit the library.

The Palace will host a health and beauty bar, with spas, salons and health and wellness centers offering information and services.

“They’ll help women look and feel their best for the upcoming holiday season,” Stevens says.

Representatives of the Blackburn Center will be present at the theater to provide information on its services to victims of domestic and sexual violence and other types of violence and crime in Westmoreland County. Donations for the center also will be accepted at the library.

Also at the library, Stevens and her husband, Robert Stevens, owners of several local radio stations, will have a “spin the wheel” game offering passes to the Pittsburgh Zoo and PPG Aquarium.

Though downtown Greensburg is easily walkable, Stevens says, a limousine will circulate through the area to provide rides along a series of shuttle stops.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
