The Lowdown with Lori
There is something special about traveling to a small town during the holiday season where locally-owned eats and boutiques are in abundance. In and around Historic Downtown Georgetown, KY is a shopper’s delight, especially when approaching the holidays. All of our businesses light their storefronts up with cheerful decorations and offer some of the best deals around. No matter the season, our small businesses are what makes our Downtown so charming. 
As you’re making your list and checking it twice, please think about the mom and pop shops first. The American Express Small Business Saturday Campaign on November 28 is a great kick-start to keeping that “Shop Small” attitude all year long! Whether you are a visitor staying in one of Georgetown’s beautiful lodgings or are a Local, you will find gracious hospitality with our Attitude of Gratitude Pledge:
1.) You will be greeted warmly with a smile (a smile always shines through our masks).
2.) You will be shown personal attention.
3.) You will feel valued and important.
4.) And, most importantly, you will receive a ‘’Thank You, I appreciate your business!”
Let us help take the hustle, the bustle, and the stress out of your shopping by encouraging you to enjoy a relaxed “shop-cation” in Georgetown, KY! To make the most of your “shop-cation” click here for additional Holiday Fun!
