Support local shops during Spring Boutique Hop
Several female business owners have put together a fun event to help you support local businesses. The women have teamed up to put on the Spring Boutique Hop Saturday, March 23.
From 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. you can visit and shop at 8 different boutiques from South Bend to Granger.
A trolley will take you from each shop to the next – while you enjoy wine and snacks.
Those participating include Ali on the Boulevard, Sorella Boutique and Vintage Charm.
You can get a hop stop card at any of the participating boutiques. If you get your card stamped at each location, you'll get exclusive coupon offers.
Ali Oesch, who owns Ali on the Boulevard, says it is a great opportunity to empower and support female business owners.
"We’re kind of competing for the same customers. And instead of letting that get in the way, we decided to all work together and become stronger together by putting together this really cool event," Oesch said. "When you’re shopping with us, you’re shopping local. You’re keeping your tax dollars in our community. You’re supporting all of the staff we have employed. It’s very meaningful to us when you shop with us, so we want to say thank you also. And this is a great way with this event."
