Children’s play opens tonight, downtown open house Friday

With all that’s going on in Corsicana Friday evening, downtown shop-keepers are going to stay open late and host an open house, according to members of the newly reformed downtown merchants association.

That evening, the Palace will host two Christmas concerts from Ball in the House, an all-male a capella group from Boston; while the Warehouse is hosting the children’s play “Rudolph the Red-nosed Reindeer.”

Hoping to attract the crowds already downtown to do some shopping, stores such as Always in Bloom, Pack N Mail, Copy Center and Supplies, Clint’s Jewelers, ArtisticEdge Studio, Central Garage auto repair, and others will be open that evening. Many, such as Grave Creek Mercantile, are rolling out the red carpet with refreshments, while others are offering specials for just that evening. Pack ‘n Mail is offering 20 percent off on all gift items from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. that night.

At Always in Bloom, a florist/gift shop, there are 30 Christmas trees in various themes set up inside the shop to help people get into the holiday mood. The store will be open until 8 p.m. that evening, according to Crystal Maddox, manager.

“We’re going to have it where people can come through, and we’ll have items on special, like ornaments and things,” she said. “It’s mostly to give people who haven’t come through to have a chance to see us, and to help them with any ideas they need for Christmas.”

Certainly one attraction will be a large gift basket give-away. Each merchant has contributed something fun or delicious to the basket, which customers can register for that night in the various shops.

Artistic Edge is also going to be open late Saturday night following the Christmas parade, said owner Becka Tomberlin.
