Short North Offering Full Month of Local Holiday Shopping
Next week the Short North will transform once again into the Short North Pole where residents and visitors can find a plethora of options for shopping locally this holiday season. The month-long celebration officially kicks off on Monday, November 25th and continues through December 22nd with special events, promotions, decorations, craft fairs and more.
“Financially, the holidays are make or break for any business, but in the Short North it is also tradition,” said Maria Galloway, owner of pm gallery. “Holiday shopping in the Short North is about being creative and going that extra step to get something unique that will be appreciated. It is about supporting local business owners and making sure those businesses will continue to add to the rich culture of our city.”
December’s “Holiday Hop” edition of Gallery Hop takes place on Saturday, December 7th with an early start time of Noon. The Garden Theatre will host the Holiday Hop Pop Up Shop all day, and Santa will be there for kids activities through 4pm.
Additional street performers, musicians and buskers will be present on Short North sidewalks all throughout weekends in December, offering a festive environment for holiday shoppers. Those official dates include December 7, 8, 14, 15, 21 and 22.
