Village Shoppes

The Village Shoppes will offer a unique collection of local boutiques and restaurants to create the premier shopping event on November 23rd, the Saturday Before the Season. The Student Services Center on the Georgetown Owens campus will be transformed into a marketplace with easy and convenient access, free admission and the best of Sussex County merchants under one roof for an entire day.

Local stores will be selling a variety of high quality merchandise. There will be something for everyone!
Popular Sussex County restaurants will be on hand to provide a dining experience while you shop.

Enjoy a leisurely meal at one of our sit down restaurants, or select light fare from several of the area's favorite food vendors.

Throughout the day, the Village Shoppes Stage will offer lessons and demos ranging from cooking to fashion to health and beauty. Use these tricks of the trade from local professionals to see what works best for you! Be there for the revealing of a head-to-toe makeover at 4 p.m.

Check back soon for a complete list of participating merchants, restaurants and stage demonstrations.
