When it comes to the city of Rosenberg, Tourism and Main Street Manager Jackie Wehring wants people to invest in local businesses. Which is why she, along with the Main Street Advisory Board, Main Street event planning committees and downtown merchants have created the Shop Small Cookie Walk.
The walk will take place on Saturday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. “The Shop Small Cookie Walk is a great way to support small business in historic downtown Rosenberg,” Wehring said. “Shoppers can pick up their Cookie Walk passport at Another Time Soda Fountain (800 Third St.) and visit the participating businesses to enjoy sweets while shopping.
“After visiting at least 12 of the 24 participating locations, customers can drop off their passport at the Rosenberg Railroad Museum for a chance to win a downtown Rosenberg gift basket. “It will be an enjoyable day of shopping while supporting our community.”
“Downtown Rosenberg is full of excellent small businesses with so much to offer,” Wehring said. “This event will bring people downtown and into the doors of our businesses where they can experience the charm of our city.”
There will be a special gift for the first 100 shoppers to pick up their passports. “I am looking forward to spending time with our community and supporting our small businesses in historic downtown,” Wehring continued. “Merchants have put so much effort into getting ready for the holidays and I can’t wait to see them showcase their businesses.”
Wehring is expecting between 300-400 people to attend Saturday’s event. The Main Street Program’s core emphasis has been the restoration of historic buildings. The program is fueled by a coalition of volunteers who work to promote and improve downtown Rosenberg.
This coalition includes property owners, merchants, representatives of nonprofit organizations and the city of Rosenberg. Rosenberg joins 88 other active Main Street cities across the state. The program is designed to assist with downtown revitalization through organization, design, promotion and economic restructuring.
