be ordered in advance at www . ourtowncoshocton . org . Day-ofpassport sales will be available while supplies last .
The $ 10 fee will provide money for a cash drawing for those who complete their passport and enter the drawing by turning in their passport at their last stop .
“ This is our second shop hop ,” said Lanny Spaulding , executive director of Our Town Coshocton . “ We did one in the fall that we promoted with Rust Décor , and it was a great success . We hope to plan these quarterly . We have so many new retailers now .”
On shop hop day , the first 100 passport holders will receive a free ornament or gift from businesses participating in the event .
“ This gives people a new reason to come in and see places ,” Spaulding said . “ With supply-chain issues , it ’ s also helpful because shoppers get to come in and actually see what you have and touch it . What you are looking for won ’ t be stuck out on a ship in the Pacific .”
Linnet Lowe from Linnet ’ s Flowers on the Square is excited for the opportunity to promote her shop . “ It gets people in to know what we have ,” she said . “ I still have people that come in and say they didn ’ t know what they could get here .”
Businesses on the list as of Nov . 17 include Bexley Ann ’ s Boutique , The Beacon , Carroll ’ s Men ’ s Shop , Dean ’ s Jewelry , Haley ’ s Floral Studio , Hannah Marie ’ s Bakery & Coffee Shop , House of G . A . Fisher Jewelers , Linnet ’ s Flowers on the Square , Marilyn ’ s Natural Foods , Mercantile on Main , Our Nest on Main , Rust Décor , Wilson Carpet & Furniture , and Zack ’ s Treasures .
