Hattiesburg ‘Holiday Open House’ will take place this weekend


HATTIESBURG, Miss. (WDAM) – The holiday season is upon us, and Central City is gearing up for its shoppers.

Downtown Hattiesburg stores will participate in the Holiday Doors Open event Saturday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., offering special promotions, discounts and entertainment for the day.

Photos with Santa will also be available at two downtown locations during the Holiday Open House: The Lucky Rabbit from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. and The Studio by Tim and Krista from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

Adrienne Hicks Garamich, owner of Blooms Company, said the day gave the community a chance to get out and shop locally while getting interesting and fun deals.

“This is just the beginning of encouraging everyone to buy local,” Garamich said. “Downtown, collectively, when you come together, it’s just stronger.

“A bigger group is better than one, so again trying to diversify every business is a little different. You’re not going to find exactly the same thing in every store.

Merchants participating in the Open day:

Alley Cats Ax Throwing, The Author Shoppe, Blooms Company, Blu Jazz Café, Coney Island Café, Fairley’s Wings & More, fivetwentyfive, Grill & Grocery, Hattiesburgers & Blues, The Lucky Rabbit, Main Street Books, McKenzie’s on Main, Oddfellows Gallery and Antiques, Sage Den, Southbound Bagel, Southern Prohibition Taproom, The Depot Kitchen, The Porter Pub, The Studio by Tim & Krista, Twin Forks Wine & Supplies and Walnut Square Gifts & Stationery.
