WOONSOCKET — Shop local, buy local, and save gas while supporting the area’s small businesses tomorrow — National Shop Small Saturday.
And if you missed the map in yesterday’s edition of The Call, the following businesses along Mendon Road are participating in The Call’s holiday cash prize giveaway. (There’s no purchase necessary at these stores in order to enter; a $100 cash prize drawing will be held on Dec. 15.)
Among these Mendon Road small businesses is Caribbean Tan, which is now offering gift certificates.
At Now Hair This, receive a $5.00 discount on services for bringing in a canned good or non-perishable food item.
Tranquil Gardens is back this year offering Harry and David food products as well as holiday decorations, jewelry, gift baskets and more.
Continue up the road to Mendon Plaza. Depending on the time of day, you can have breakfast at Eggs Up or lunch at Cumberland House of Pizza.
Need a little extra money for the holidays? Gold Advance can help. Not only do they buy gold, they also sell jewelry.
Give the gift of health at It's My Health.
There are two new businesses in this plaza: Spinworks, which offers indoor cycling in a unique setting, and the Green Label Boutique, LLC — a consignment shop offering high-end fashion and home décor such as shoes, pocketbooks, and accessories.
Coffee Connection has a selection of gourmet coffees while Rick's Music, which moved to Mendon Road in April, has a variety of instruments as well as stocking stuffers.
Patronize the new restaurant Forno Pizzeria Deli and Cafe, or stop in to Jungle Junction for the pet lover on your list.
Elsewhere, J Grays Family Tavern is open seven days a week for lunch and dinner. Planning a small holiday party or luncheon with co-workers? J Grays can help.
Lastly, located less than a mile from the entrance to the bike path is Blackstone Bicycles, which relocated to Mendon Road from Lincoln. Not only do they sell bikes and accessories, they do repairs and tune-ups on any make and model bicycle.
