Time to Shop

Staff Writer

This year the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting another Summer Shopping Extravaganza to help promote local businesses.
On Thursday, June 15, residents of Big Spring are encouraged to get out and support the local economy by shopping at some of the local shops around town.
“During the summer these local shops tend to have a lag in business,” said Nancy Davenport, Executive Assistant for the Big Spring Area Chamber of Commerce. “We are just trying to help them boost their business.”
Twelve local businesses have already signed up to participate by offering discounts and prizes for customers including some shops that are offering up to 25 percent off of everything storewide.
All businesses participating will be open from 5 a.m. to 8 p.m. Local businesses participating include: Blissful Boutique, 1801 E. FM 700 (Spring Town Plaza); Blue-Eyed Buffalo, 223 S. Main; The Chalet Resale Shop, 115 E. 2nd St.; Dazzling Decor, 1304 Scurry; LoCo Flamingos, 1912 Scurry; Lula Blu Boutique, 2112 Scurry; Merle Norman Cosmetics, 1210 S.
