The holiday season is in full swing and if you’re looking to do some shopping, Old City is offering some hot deals this winter. The annual Old City Historic Shopping Stroll is returns for an evening of freebies, discounts and more at over 25 shops and restaurants.
The Old City Stroll takes place on Wednesday December 13th from 5 pm to 8 pm. Some of the deals being offered include half off cocktails, complimentary desserts, as well as a variety of discounts. Shoppers will also receive a complementary Old City tote bag with any purchase at participating locations while supplies last.
“There’s something special about the holidays in Old City,” said Job Itzkowitz, Executive Director of Old City District. “With extended shopping hours, caroling along Old City streets, and exclusive offers and complimentary refreshments offered at participating stores, the Historic Holidays Shopping Stroll not only captures some of that seasonal magic, but also provides an opportunity for businesses to increase foot traffic into their stores, drive sales, and connect with new customers.”
