Love your neighbor during Love Your Downtown

LYD Event Cover

Written by Kathy Witt

For months you’ve been reading about others’ acts of kindness; now it is your turn to step into the spotlight, to participate in your own act of kindness by showing some love locally – and get rewarded with the opportunity to win a basketful of merch, gift cards and Georgetown-branded swag in the process.Downtown buildings

Love Your Downtown takes place February 6-27 and our downtown businesses would love for you to join in the fun. Brought to you in part by Celebrate Georgetown, KY, this event is all about shopping local and all the good that comes out of that simple act of kindness . . . like supporting a neighbor’s blood, sweat and tears – and helping make their dreams a reality – from bringing delicious, chef-designed foods to the table to showcasing unique gifts, artwork, jewelry and other items on the shelves.

“We are hoping this is a way for our customers and shoppers that may not know about the wide variety of shops downtown to discover you can shop and stay close to home,” said Shari Lewis of Cravens & Lewis Jewelers. The store will be rolling Love Your Downtown into its Valentine’s Day promotion. (See story on this long-term Georgetown business here.)
