Fremont is a pretty cool neighborhood to begin with. We've got some of our favorite restaurants (if you haven't been to Revel you know what you're doing this weekend), bars, tourist attractions (um, free chocolate at a a local chocolate factory - sign me up, tourist or not) and of course some of the best boutiques around including yours truly, PIPE + ROW. We love Fremont and want to make it even better, so our latest collaboration with small businesses in the neighborhood has been Fremont's Third Thursday.
This event will happen every third Thursday of the month and involves thirteen local businesses. We want to celebrate independent business owners and our customers! Fremont's unique vibe is due to a lot of factors but we feel that our small businesses have such an impact on the diverse character of the area that we want to make sure we support for each other, locals and supportive customers! Each month, stores will offer drinks, nibbles and promotions (we will be doing trunk shows in the future)! Currently, each business that is participating hangs an awesome Saturn plant disco ball (it lights up and everything!) outside their store to show they are involved and then will tell you their promotions once inside. We did 15% off the whole store (whaaat) and participated in the raffle with all the stores! Even as I'm writing this it sounds too good to be true - wine, a discount and extra goodies? You heard right ma ladies. We blasted some good music, chatted, sipped and shopped the night away. There was a mix of new customers who happened to stumble across this great event and local customers who came out especially for the night! We want to thank everyone who did make it out, planned or not. We had a great time here at P+R and hope you did too. Hoping it to be the first of many third Thursdays out and about in Fremont! Get ready for a good ol photo bomb from the night.
