AMORY, Miss. (WCBI) – As the holiday season is drawing near, one local town is hoping to get everyone in the Christmas spirit.
Amory Main Street and local downtown businesses have turned the area into a Christmas village.
Over the weekend, merchants have hosted an open house offering various discounts to jump start participants’ holiday shopping.
Highlights of the weekend included breakfast with Santa and refreshments offered to shoppers.
Mercants say business has been good and many customers have come over the weekend.
“We’ve had a lot of people come in and we’ve had great support through the town and we just enjoy seeing everybody,” said Elizabeth Haney, Shann Agains. “We just hope to get everybody into the Christmas spirit so you all come see us.”
Merchants in Amory are planning another Open House in December.
