Shop-A-Holics Weekend Returns March 3-6, 2016
AVALON, NJ—The popular Shop-a-Holics weekend event returns to The Princeton and The Whitebrier, March 3-6 featuring extended shopping hours and a Thursday night preview party. Grab your girlfriends and get ready for spring with designers, drinks and deals in two great locations with even better prices.
The event is hosted by the 7 Mile Business Community Association (7MBCA) and a variety of local stores and boutiques from the Seven Mile Beach are confirmed to participate, including Closet Boutique, Global Pursuit, Blufish Designs, ellelauri, Armadillo, LTD., and more.
“Now in its ninth year, Shop-A-Holics has become the ‘soft’ opening for the season and the ‘must go to’ discount shopping party the first weekend in March,” said Event Coordinator, Kathy Wierzbicki. “Each year it gets bigger and better and is a great opportunity to catch up with friends over a cocktail and a burger, take advantage of great deals on everything from women’s and men’s clothing, shoes and accessories to home décor from all the best local stores of the Seven Mile Island while supporting a local charity, Play with Jack.”
This year’s event will benefit Play with Jack Foundation, an organization who raises funds and awareness in an effort to fight cancer in honor of the late Jack Cremin. Shoppers are encouraged to pay a $5 cover charge on Friday evening beginning at 5 p.m. Throughout the weekend, monetary donations will be accepted as well.
The event isn’t only for ladies either, Hassis Men’s Shop will have a space featuring brand named men’s fashions. Tiger Lily, People People, and Gingy’s will show off the latest fashions and Coffee Talk will be serving delicious coffee and pastries. Don’t forget to grab a cocktail as you browse over 30 participating vendors.
