It is Ladies Night Out in Ishpeming, and shopping is the sport of choice.
Each shopper’s goal is to get a card stamped at each participating shop to be eligible for a prize drawing.
Local business owners say Ladies Night Out is a fun way to kick off the holiday season and interact with new customers.
Karen Collins from All Seasons Floral says, “They’re really busy getting their cards punched and running from business to business but they get to see what I have here and maybe they will come back here in the season to shop,” Karen Collins, from All Seasons Floral said.
“You see a lot of people coming in that don’t really know what’s located downtown, so it’s a good chance for them to get out and see the different businesses that are here,” Karisma Simon, Avant Gardens Floral said.
Ladies Night ends at 8 p.m. The Butler Theatre is participating with live music Tuesday.
The prize drawing will be held at the U.S. National Ski and Snowboard Hall of Fame at 9 a.m. Thursday.
