Sumter's Parade of Shops kicks off holiday gifting season on Sunday

Posted

Parades are rampant during special events and holidays, but the one happening on Sunday can help take you through your holiday shopping and show you Sumter's locally owned businesses.

The annual Parade of Shops will take place on Sunday from 1:30 to 5:30 p.m., during which participating businesses along Bultman Drive, Wesmark Boulevard and North Main Street will be open to customers who want to get ahead on their gift list. Many stores will be offering special deals, prizes and more. Stores will also be offering snacks and refreshments.

Those who are used to shopping at Ages Antiques on Guignard Drive for almost the last decade might be confused if they try to visit there now and find it's moved. The business that sells antiques, gifts and curated signs opened at its new location downtown at 13 N. Main St., sharing a space with Naomi and Warner, on Nov. 1. They will be open on Sunday and welcome holiday, new and regular shoppers to explore the new location.

A brand new store on Guignard Drive is participating this year and offering plenty of deals and refreshments.

An ad for Your CBD Store in The Sumter Item is good for $10 off when you spend $40, and anyone who visits the store, which opened this spring, can register to win a gift basket filled with products including their orange tincture and topical pain cream. Both of those products won awards at the 2019 CBD Expo, according to Ashley Jacobs, who owns the business with her husband, Eugene Jacobs.

Those who get off Bultman Drive and head to Simpson Hardware & Sports will be privy to 20% off clothing, shoes, gifts and Christmas products, and it will have snacks.

Elephant Ear will have its unique gifts created locally, artisan breads, books by local authors, refreshments, prizes and more.
