Shop The Block

Shopping Uptown is about experience and we are celebrating our urban retail district with a day of shopping on Saturday, March 24th, ‘Shop The Block.’

Uptown, we are unique.  One can walk our beautiful streets and stop into various boutiques and shops as well as stroll from Market Square to Brunswick Square and all the way through to the historic City Market.  During our inaugural ‘Shop The Block’ event, you will enjoy the natural unique uptown shopping experience, but also be treated to special tastes, demos, sights, sounds, and indulgences along the way.

This is a perfect occasion to get some friends together and make a day of it.  Shop, take some photos, eat and sip, perhaps even take in some nightlife and stay the evening, enjoying a nice Sunday breakfast uptown.  It’s all up to you.

Forget the box, come out and ‘Shop The Block!’

Follow the event on FACEBOOK, and invite your friends!
