Two women business owners are teaming up on a marketing campaign called "Meet in the Center." It promotes Clarence Center as a destination for area residents and visitors. The promotion highlights three retail shops: The Perfect Gift, Get Heeled and Crossroads Books, along with gourmet cookware shop, cooking school and café L'Atelier, as well as luncheon hotspot NovelTea. The businesses say they're getting strong feedback this holiday season despite a slow economy.
The Perfect Gift and Get Heeled have extended their holiday shopping hours and will be open 10am to 8pm each day, except Sunday when the hours are noon to 5pm. The shops will close at 4pm on Christmas Eve.
