TUESDAY, MAY 15: It may not be a Bermuda Day sale, but this Thursday will be a great opportunity to get your May 24th shopping done a week ahead of time.
The Retail Division of The Bermuda Chamber of Commerce has organized a “Shop, Dine & Unwind” event for Thursday, May 17.
Paula Clarke, retail chair for the Chamber of Commerce, said: “We are very excited about this initiative which will bring shops from all areas within the City limits together with participating restaurants to promote our Go Local campaign.
“A total of 60 stores and restaurants will be participating; all the stores will be open late and the restaurants involved in the promotion will all be offering special late shopper discounts.”
Ms. Clarke, who is also the CEO of Gibbons Company, went on to state that there would also be many in-store activities and promotions from Front Street to Court Street.
“It is all about having a fun, interactive shopping experience. At Gibbons Company for instance, we will be featuring models at ‘Style Stations’ throughout the store, as well as offering super saver pre-May 24th deals and complimentary wine tastings.”
Joanne MacPhee, Chamber executive vice president, said: “The Chamber’s Retail Division is always very active, looking for creative ways to promote the Go Local concept and we are delighted that they have partnered with our restaurant division to offer this City-wide experience.
“Our stores are full of wonderful merchandise, at very competitive prices, so we urge shoppers to come into the City on Thursday night and get into the holiday spirit. “
