Happy New Year!
"And now let us welcome the new year, full of things that have never been."
Rainer Maria Wilka
2016 is here, a new year filled with possibilities and new opportunities for us as retailers. We had a very busy 2015 season from the onset of Spring Fling in April to our Halloween Pet and Children's Parade, followed by a fantastic, fun-filled Victorian Holiday Festival of Inns and House Tour and Doll House Exhibit- a great close out to 2015.
Each season in the Grove has it charms and there are varied events to attend. Even before the Flea Markets of May and September, which have become legendary, there are events to cure the "winter blahs". Think Girlfriends Week-end Getaway, which this year is scheduled for the last week-end in February, or Chocolate Lovers' Week-end, scheduled for early March. Both winter events promise to put a smile on your face. This February, specifically in conjunction with Girlfriends Getaway Weekend, From Heart to Hearth invites you to our Customer Appreciation Weekend, starting Friday, February 26th through Sunday, February 28th. There will be light refreshments, giveaways, in-store discounts and specials. So whatever your pleasure, please come and enjoy what Ocean Grove has to offer, off-season. You will not be disappointed. And don't forget to stop in at our shop. We are open all year round, but closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays throughout January, February and March. We look forward to seeing you this winter.
An update for Girlfriends' Getaway weekend, which is being held On Saturday, February 27th and Sunday, February 28th. From Heart to Hearth is hosting 'You', our customer, with a Customer Appreciation Week-end. This is a first time event for us and for you. It is also our celebratory event, marking our fifth anniversary. Please come and enjoy our offerings. I can assure you that there will be many treasures to interest you, and discounts to sweeten your experience. Some exclusions may apply. If you plan on being in town, don't forget to take advantage of this great shopping deal.
Where has 2016 gone? As we approach Thanksgiving, we give thanks to you for your patronage. Please don't forget to support your local merchants on Small Business Saturday, November 26th. Reserve a date on your calendar to visit Victorian Ocean Grove this Holiday season. It is truly a special place which will warm your heart.
A full listing of events throughout 2017 is always available on the Ocean Grove Chamber website.
