Exeter Hosts Ladies Night Out!

On Thursday, May 30th, Exeter’s downtown was full of pink balloons celebrating the first annual “Ladies Night Out” shopping event. Over 30 stores participated, with each business having special deals, prizes, and snacks from 4 to 8 p.m. What a neat idea to get the ladies out shopping! Even with the torrential downpour and hail, I managed to visit the majority of stores, and was impressed by the number of deals and freebies. By the end of the night I got some free jewellery cleaner, hand cream, and sampled a wellness treatment. Plus, I also got to nibble on some cookies, cake, guacamole, chocolate dipped strawberries, butter tarts, punch, and even a glass of champagne. It really was like getting the VIP treatment!

Often people think that shopping local means spending a lot of money, but that’s not always the case. I managed to find a good deal on jewellery, and picked up a pair of earrings for $6 including tax!

I won a package of organic hair and body products from one of the stores and a small painting from the Art aRound Town Gallery at the South Huron Welcome Centre. I hope “Ladies Night Out” becomes an annual event and that other communities have similar shopping events!
