Hello lovelies! Happy Friday. It's a beautiful day and it's going to be a beautiful evening - perfect for strolling, sipping and sightseeing in Portsmouth. So, I wanted to tell you all about this fabulous retail initiative that we, Gus & Ruby Letterpress, are taking part in this summer called Shop Portsmouth Friday Nights (SPFN for short).
SPFN is a fun event that we, the retailers of Portsmouth, came up with to help encourage local businesses in Portsmouth to stay open later in the evenings, specifically Friday nights, in the summer months when y'all are out and about enjoying the town. Being open later means more shopping opportunities for you wonderful people - and the program is off to a really great start!!
A large number of downtown businesses are committed to remaining open to at least 8PM on Friday evenings through the summer and into the Fall (and maybe later!).
Check out THIS site for more details on the program and the many participating stores.
We're truly proud to be among some of the most interesting, engaging and supportive group of retailers found anywhere. Portsmouth has a wide variety of locally-owned, locally-run, personal and distinctive stores; you can find everything from one-of-a-kind jewelry, to NH-made products, to incredible, hip fashion and tremendous fine art. For a small-ish town, we really have a variety I've never seen anywhere else. Best of all, I can say with all confidence that you will experience amazing hospitality, personal attention and unparalleled customer service at each and every spot.
I sorta love this town - can you tell?
In any case - we'll be open until 8PM every Friday this summer, so stop by on your way to or from dinner. We'd love to see you!
