The hustle and bustle of the holiday season can be overwhelming. With so many events to attend and loved ones to shop for, wouldn’t it be great if you could do both at the same time? Here in downtown Decatur, you can do just that.
Every Thursday in November and December, over 20 small businesses come together to participate in Terrific Thursdays. On these Thursdays, restaurants and shops will feature special events and discounts for all. This is the perfect family outing for getting into the holiday spirit in the heart of Decatur. All you need to do is find a convenient parking spot and start your stroll through downtown Decatur to take advantage of all of the holiday specials the businesses have to offer. With every participating business within walking distance, this is the best way for you to stay out of the extra holiday traffic and maximize your holiday shopping productivity.
During these busy winter months, it can be easy to lose sight of the true meaning of the holiday season. Slowing down from the normal routine of life to spend time with family is an important part of the holidays that many of us don’t necessarily take the opportunity to do. During Terrific Thursdays, you don’t have to restrict yourself to just shopping; you can simply wander around the city with your loved ones taking in the holiday decorations and hum of spirit that fills the atmosphere this time of year.
For families, we hear that Santa is making appearances at shops and restaurants starting in December. Or if you’re looking for a holiday night-out-on-the-town opportunity, there are plenty of restaurants eager to serve up some delicious cocktails and memorable meals. In downtown Decatur, there’s something for everyone.
Shopping small businesses is a great way to support our city, and it has provided significant support and courage with its ‘Keep It Indie-Catur’ campaign. By participating in Terrific Thursdays, you’re not only contributing to the success of the local small businesses, but our neighbors who operate them.
A few businesses participating that are featuring standout specials include:
- Aimee Jewelry & Gallery, which will feature 20 percent off select jewelry.
- Makan Restaurant & Bar, which will add 20 percent to all gift card purchases and give customers a free glass of beer or wine with their meal with the mention of Terrific Thursdays.
- Ted’s Montana Grill, which will be offering The Ted’s Bison Chili Starter Kit, Karen’s “Flying-D” Bison Chili Recipe, and a jar of Ted’s half sour pickles for $25.
Here at Pak and McRae Law, LLC, we can’t pass up the perfect opportunity to spend time with our families and friends; much less a great discount when fulfilling our shopping lists…and our bellies! Whatever your motive is for joining in on the fun, you’ll find an abundance of memories to be made at Terrific Thursdays in downtown Decatur.
