The Main Street Improvement Project is all but complete, traffic is flowing, pedestrians are strolling the new widened promenades, and merchants are on a sugar high.
Carol Schillios, owner of Fabric of Life, was out on the sidewalk wearing a huge smile and greeting passersby. “It’s fabulous!” she said. “Things were very slow during construction, but today people are back walking the street and stopping in our store.”
“We’re looking forward to a great holiday season with lots of local shoppers supporting us and the other downtown Edmonds merchants,” she added. “Avoid the hassle of the mall, and ‘shop small’ right here in downtown Edmonds.”
And a reminder that this Saturday, Nov. 24, is indeed the official “Small Business Saturday.” So spread the word, and shop small!
