Greensburg Ladies Night will be shopping fun for everyone
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.
