Everyone’s invited to Montclair Village this Thursday evening. Why now? After all, we’re not celebrating a holiday, wandering around a fine arts festival or eating our way through a fundraiser.
Village merchants are rolling out their red carpets for the first-ever “Shop Local Extravaganza.” Stores are open late, so that we can pick up essentials or non-essentials before the Memorial Day weekend.
“It’s a perfect time for busy families to shop for seasonal specials and have fun in the process,” says Roger Vickery, director of the Montclair Village Association (MVA).
Village shops will stay open until 8:30pm, with their own special discounts and screaming sales. To attract local shoppers and strollers, there will be additional lures of free food, refreshments, art and entertainment.
Yes, parking is also free after 6pm. The La Salle garage stays open until 9pm.
