Due to the current rise in COVID case numbers in our community, the previously scheduled Ladies Day Out: Shop, Sip & Stroll event on October 10th is canceled. If you have purchased a ticket, please reach out to the venue you purchased from for store credit or reimbursement.
Even though the day of shopping, snacks, and wine samples may not be going on as planned, there’s many different ways for you to still shop and support local this fall season:
  • Shop local online with the downtown unique boutiques and specialty stores! They have online stores, Facebook sales, and more to help you purchase that perfect autumn must-have.
  • Plan your own day out following the safety precautions each store has in place to keep you healthy; wear a mask, practice social distancing, wash your hands often.
  • Still want a day or night with your closest friends to shop? Reach out to a business and plan a PRIVATE SHOPPING time just for you.
Those cute fall outfits, boots, pumpkin scented candles, and all things fall décor are still there calling your name! The downtown business owners are here to meet you at your comfort level to make sure you can still get what you need!
So what are you waiting for? Start shopping in Downtown Appleton NOW and know you are supporting a small, local business while you do so.  Click here for a list of downtown shops to check out.
