Thursday kicked off the first day of a new shopping experience in St. Clair. Shop St. Clair Summer Shopping Stroll started with 9 participating stores in St. Clair. To encourage retail business before the opening of the long-anticipated St. Clair Inn, shoppers can pick up a “passport” at participating locations and get it validated as they stroll around town. When the challenge is complete, the shopper turns in their passport to win a basket full of gifts from each store. Participating locations include Blackbird Home Goods, Boomerangs, Coughlin Jewelers, Hers Women’s Fashions, The St. Clair Art Association, Silk’s Flower Shop, Simply Marcella, The Chocolate Harbor, and the Craft Loft. The group does have a Facebook page for more information, or you can stop into one of the participating locations.
