Things you want, things you need, holiday shopping closer to home than you think
Shop the Block is intended to promote awareness of Reading as a shopping destination offering stylish, affordable things, including artisan-designed accessories and wearable art, home decor items, gems and semiprecious-stone jewelry, wine and gourmet delicacies, glassware and pottery, and clothing, accessories and gifts for children & four-legged friends– many of them one-of-a-kind. This shop local effort serves to remind shoppers of the importance of supporting local businesses to create a vibrant downtown shopping district.
Shoppers are encouraged to grab a bite to eat at one of Reading’s numerous restaurants and begin their stroll along Main & Haven Streets. Participating businesses, many of whom are offering exclusive Shop the Block specials, will be designated with a festive red bow on the door.
Shop the Block will take place Thursday, December 5 from 5 to 9 p.m. in downtown Reading. Make it a Girls Night Out, Date Night or neighborhood event – just come downtown for a fun evening! For updates, please check the STB Facebook page, Shop the Block Reading Mass.
