2nd Annual Shop The Block

Shopping Uptown is about experience and we are celebrating our urban retail district with a day of shopping on Saturday, April 6th with our 2nd Annual ‘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 ‘Shop The Block,’ you will enjoy the natural unique uptown shopping experience, and 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.  On street parking is FREE on Saturdays!

 

Join the event on FACEBOOK and invite your friends!

 

First Stop – the Uptown Saint John office at 17 Canterbury for a FREE shopping bag with treats and deals from our uptown businesses (limited quantity, while supplies last).  Also, enjoy some beats on the street from ‘La Reine Queen of Dance!   Forget the box, ‘Shop The Block!’

Watch for dynamic and vibrant pop-up demonstrations by Flamenco en Rouge (performing at Kent Theatre the evening of April 6) while you are out and about during Shop The Block.
