It’s Easy to Shop Small on Small Business Saturday


There’s nothing better than seeing a friendly face at your favorite small business for a cup of coffee, to grab a beer after witnessing one too many black Friday fist fights, pick up a thoughtful gift for a friend, or to sweat off some post-Thanksgiving pounds. So we’re going to make it easy for you to enjoy your favorite shops or find some new gems you haven’t visited yet.

At Charter Homes & Neighborhoods, we believe that you should be able to walk to local shops any day of the year! But this Saturday, November 26th, Small Business Saturday, we invite you to explore Crossroads in two locations on the West Shore. Both Walden Crossroads and Arcona Crossroads showcase a quaint enclave of walkable locally owned businesses with everything you’re looking for.

Start at Walden off of the Carlisle Pike in Mechanicsburg (near Wegmans) to browse chic baby fashion at Snazzy Giraffe, grab a beer at Harty Brewing Co. or lunch at Sophia’s in Walden, or enjoy a chardonnay as you paint the perfect still life at aMuse Uncorked.

In Arcona, at the intersection of Rossmoyne Road and Lisburn Road just off of Rt. 15 and the PA Turnpike, shop luxury boutique items like organic skincare, makeup or jewelry at Bevrore, or pick up a piece of fine art at Pure Gallery, pamper yourself at RED Salon, or sweat off some post-Thanksgiving stuffing at The Studio by Absolute Pilates.
