My question is this: Why wouldn’t you shop Emporia first?
Sounds like the same song just another verse, but the reasoning is still very strong to give Emporia merchants the first crack for your shopping needs.
First, it just makes sense to shop Emporia first. Business done here benefits friends and neighbors and creates taxes and all that stuff.
Secondly, our local businesses are flourishing with larger inventories thus a better selection making for happier shoppers.
We here at KVOE know Emporia business is good. Merchants who are not having successful seasons don’t advertise and we are seeing merchants double up their ad schedules to take advantage of eager shoppers.
IF YOU HAVEN’T GIVEN EMPORIA A LOOK YOU ARE WASTING TIME AND MONEY!
Big deals or small items Emporia has a great selection.
We have three outstanding jewelry stores; three auto dealers with newly remodeled digs to serve you better; furniture – you said furniture – well if you haven’t looked we have several well stocked stores offering great deals. Outstanding gifts can be found at Emporia’s excellent selection of hardware, home improvement and carpet stores.
Downtown Emporia is doing back flips to gain your attention and offers a variety of unique shopping opportunities. What do you desire? Shoes, candy, sporting goods or clothing, guns, books, engraved items, bath or home needs, custom logoed shirts or bags, jewelry, office needs, dishes, even cool artsy stuff…… there’s no way to name them all.
Visit Emporia’s “main street” for a great shopping experience!
And, don’t forget the Flint Hills Mall with lots of stores inside and all with specials for Christmas.
Still not convinced? How about all Emporia’s many fine places to eat? Gift Cards make cool gifts.
This might be taking a chance, but our fitness centers offer gift cards too, but be very careful!
Emporia has beauty salons galore – is that an acceptable term? They have deals on everything from facials to massages.
They say tanning is great. What a neat gift!
Gift Certificates are an option. The Chamber, Main Street and the Mall all have them for sale.
Enough said and sorry if I missed someone, but Emporia does have much to offer.
So, why wouldn’t you shop Emporia first?
