We can no longer “support our shops,” we must SAVE them! Since there is no construction happening, and Devon is just sitting there torn up, we are going to use the area to party and save our shops! Our local community groups are hosting Save Our Shops Block Party: Edgebrook Takes Back the Streets!
This is a shopping event! For the rest of this week and on the day of the event, save your receipts from Edgebrook shops, as each one will give you a chance to enter the Lucky Shopper Drawing on 9/1.
There will also be local food & special deals the day of this event.
This is a block party! Bring your chairs and enjoy live music and your neighbors. Kids will enjoy a bouncy house, face painting and crafts in the Kids Zone, as well as a visit from a fire truck.
Shop, shop, shop! Rain OR shine!
We must all come together to save our shops!
From NOW through the day of event, save your receipts to enter the "Lucky Shopper Drawing" and get several chances to win some amazing prizes!
