New to the event this year are Max’s Restaurant and Costumeville, both located in Ashley Plaza, along with returning participants Chattanooga Jewelry Company and The Freckled Peddler.
Mayfly Coffee returns after a year off from the weekend-long open house and is joined by Bud Floral + Home, Balanced Studio, Hummingbird Pastaria (Saturday only) and Yessick’s.
Signal Plaza and Signal Crossing feature a number of long-time participating retailers, including Accents, All Creatures Great & Small, Cutting Corners Framing Art & Gifts, Mountain Top Toys, Pruett’s Market and Threads.
"We’re excited to have new businesses participating this year in what will be our largest group of retailers and restaurants taking part in recent memory," says Patrick Holland, owner of Mountain Top Toys. "And this year, local residents and visitors can enjoy some of the mountain’s finest food and beverages at Max’s Restaurant, Mayfly Coffee, Hummingbird Pastaria, and of course, Pruett’s Market, with all its in-store ready-made food offerings."
This year, Saturday & Sunday on Signal will also reward five lucky shoppers with $50 gift cards. Postcard entry forms were mailed out to everyone on the mountain in late October, but all participating retailers and restaurants have extra copies. To enter, get four stamps from four businesses – one from each of the four shopping zones around town. After getting the fourth stamp, leave the postcard with that retailer or restaurant. A prize drawing will be held the following week.
No purchase is necessary to enter, but local business owners hope the community will continue to support them in what has traditionally been a very successful weekend.
:This is the time of year to support mountain businesses that serve our community, and give back to local schools, organizations and special events throughout the year," says Holland. "And with all the amazing products and specials, it’s just a really fun and busy shopping weekend."
