merchants open houses, events
Countywide, between now and Christmas your merchants are doing their part by hosting many activities and sales events starting with Black Friday — the unofficial kickoff to the holiday shopping season the day after Thanksgiving. Merchants in Chester are staying open Friday until 9 p.m. offering tasty treats, special discounted pricing and lots of prize giveaways. Other activities at this annual festivity include an appearance by Santa and ABC Center’s Christmas tree lighting (Hospice lights its tree Saturday at 6 p.m.).
Young’s Market has been a family-run business in Taylorsville for more than 150 years, and new owner Kelly Tan and her family want to return it to its heyday in some ways.
On the way out will be one shelving unit, and in its place will be a huge farm-style table where patrons can sit by the new glass-fronted woodstove and enjoy food and drinks together.
