Athens Main Street debuts Boutique Crawl

ATHENS — It is said men go shopping to buy what they want … women go shopping to find out what they want.

Either way, downtown Athens will be open to all kinds of shoppers Saturday in its inaugural Boutique Crawl.

Tere Richardson, executive director of Athens Main Street, said she expects to see the streets “crawling” with bargain hunters having a lot of fun this weekend.

“We have had a huge response from retailers and with spring break coming on the heels of summer, shoppers will find all kinds of merchandise at discounted prices,” she said. “Anyone making a minimum $20 purchase on Saturday from a participating retailer, will be entered into a chance to win a $500 gift certificate, thanks to Dream Key Real Estate.”
