The Enjoy Troy Co. hosted a community screen-printing event on Monday, Nov. 24, 2014. Downtown Troy business owners, neighbors and friends met at the Lucas Confectionery wine bar to print 200 re-usable shopping totes with the “enjoy troy.” symbol. The bags will be available around downtown during “Small Business Saturday,” Nov. 29. and will include a list of shopping “incentives” offered by shops and restaurants.
Watch this adorable video from the event, created by Rhe Potenza, owner of Truly Rhe, a women’s boutique located at One Broadway in downtown Troy.
You can find these totes and a wide array of “enjoy troy.” stocking stuffers and gifts in our online store, at Artcentric Gallery and other downtown Troy retail locations.
This event was part of Troy’s “Mall-ternative” campaign, created by the Downtown Troy Business Improvement District to promote our city as a holiday shopping alternative to the suburban malls.
Troy’s Mall-ternative experience includes extended business hours, festive events like the Troy Turkey Troy and the Victorian Stroll, and a world-class urban fabric to explore.
But it’s the people and the sociable community that really can’t be beat! Troy is Open for Business.
