Shop, eat, and be merry with local businesses this holiday season. Hattiesburg locals and visitors are encouraged to “shop small” on Saturday, Nov. 28th, by visiting locally owned shops and restaurants in Downtown Hattiesburg.

Participating downtown merchants and restaurants will be open on Saturday with activities from 10am until 4pm. Some of the participating stores include: Walnut Square Gifts and Stationery, Main Street Books and Wildflower Market, Blooms: A Garden Shop, McKenzie’s on Main, Ruby Nails, Sack’s Outdoors, Your CBD Store, and Go Young Fashions. Participating eateries include The Porter Pub, Nellie’s Chicken and Daiquiris, The Depot Kitchen & Market, FIKA Swedish Café, Southbound Bagel, Fairley’s Wings and More, and Southern Prohibition Brewery.

Don’t forget, Downtown is an Entertainment and Leisure District so the Go-Cup ordinance allows guests to “sip and shop” along the streets of downtown, where festive windowscapes and holiday décor will bring a cheerful atmosphere to the day.
