GREENVILLE — This Valentine’s Day season show your loved ones how much you love them by showering them with a saccharine of unique gifts from our unique shops and have a date night downtown. The merchants would love your support and are ready to serve you and your sweetheart.
Earn a chance to enter a drawing for a $250 Downtown Shopping Spree for every $50 you spend in a downtown business. Patronize the unique shops, beauty salons, restaurants, coffee shops and more. “There are over 50 businesses participating in the Downtown Saccharine. Why not Shop Small all year? We have an amazing downtown and we all need to do our part to protect the charm we have in our community and help the businesses downtown thrive. We hope you will join the movement and choose to spend your dollars locally when possible,” said, April Brubaker, executive director.
You don’t have to wait for Valentine’s Day; you can choose your date night early or shop early to beat the Valentine’s Day crowd. Or better yet, really spoil yourself or your sweetheart and plan several love-fun filled days and evenings downtown during the Downtown Saccharine. By doing so, you will increase your chances to win.
Simply look for the Downtown Saccharine flyers in businesses to see who is participating, then for every $50 you spend you can enter to win at that business. It’s that easy to show your love for yourself, your valentine, for local small businesses, and downtown Greenville. Head downtown soon and look for signs.
What else is new that we think you will love? The 2024 Events Calendar!
