Bethany Beach business owners are slashing prices this Columbus Day weekend, looking to sell off what’s left of their summer inventory and offer visitors and locals alike a chance for some great deals in the process.
“It’s a great way for all the businesses to be able to attract customers to come in from the surrounding areas and get some great sales,” said Jackie Inman, owner of Bethany Beach Books.
“[It’s] a great way for different stores to be able to clear out from summer 2014, so we can get ready for summer 2015,” said Inman.
Some stores will be placing sale items outside, but there will still be deals to be had inside the stores, as all the businesses will operate during their normal hours.
Inman’s store will even be offering free gift wrapping for those looking to get a jump on their Christmas shopping.
“We do a significant deal at our store. It’s a great way for people that come into town to get Christmas presents,” she said.
The event will kick off this Saturday and continue through Columbus Day Monday, and local restaurants are expected to offer specials, as well.
