Shopping ambassador Ann-Marie Arnold-Smith is pumped for the second annual Ladies Night Out

Shop until you drop Thursday

Participating merchants along Cloverdale's 176 Street invite shoppers to the second annual Ladies' Night Out

It’s already become a tradition worth keeping.

It’s the Cloverdale BIA’s Ladies’ Night Out shopping event, back for the second year in a row this Thursday night (Dec. 3) from 5-9 p.m. in the historic town centre.

Participating merchants along 176 Street are hosting a late night shopping event aimed at maximizing fun and friendship in the lead up to the busy holiday season.

Grab your BFFs and head on down for an evening of fun and shopping on 176 Street, where two dozen merchants – and another dozen vendors who are participating as stores-within-stores – are laying out the welcome mat with goodies, refreshments, and festivities, along with plenty of deals.

Guys – watch the game at a local eatery or pub while your other half shops and the two of you can make a night of it by meeting up before and after.

Shoppers can enter to win prizes: there are $,1000 in gift certificates up for grabs. Enter to win by shopping at three or more participating stores (between 5 and 9 p.m.). Follow the red and white balloons to find participating merchants.

The event is modeled on the Steveston Merchant’s Association’s (SMA) Girls’ Night Out, which draws hundreds of women to the historic district each November.
