First up, this Saturday, Nov. 21st, Simon Oliver Menswear has its grand opening / ribbon cutting at 12 Noon. Website: http://www.shopsimonoliver.com
Simon Oliver is a menswear shop operated by Perry Newsom, who has 20 years of experience in the business.
Newsom explains Simon Oliver is “a sophisticated men’s retail destination with high-quality sportswear and formalwear for discriminating shoppers.”
The store’s lines include Corneliani, Angelo Nardelli, Gimos Leathers, and Breuer Neckwear. The store is named after their two teen-aged sons, Simon and Oliver.
Simon Oliver is the first store to receive a grant from WFB's "Retail Incentive Program" which aims to fill Silver Spring with new merchants.
Please, let's get a good crowd down there welcoming our newest merchant on Silver Spring. -- 318 E. Silver Spring, near Starbucks, Saturday at Noon.
Here's an idea .. go there for the Grand Opening, then hit Berkeley's for lunch, and help out your local merchants. Swing by Mobility for a new laptop, get a few dog treats at Hounds Around Town, a few trinkets at Winkies.
Also .. The Holiday Stroll / Parade is next Friday, the day after Thanksgiving from 5-9pm.
The theme of this year’s parade is Holidays Around the World which culminates with Santa’s annual arrival to the Village.
Food and beverages, FREE pony, carriage & train rides, entertainment.
Stores will be open late with holiday specials, entertainment and treats for shoppers. Santa is sticking around M&I Bank, which is where he keeps his good/bad list.
The parade begins at 6pm, at the corner of Kent and Silver Spring Drive, heading east ending at Lake Drive.
I hope to be walking in the parade .. so if you shout "Village Spillage" you should have some candy coming your way.
