Carol Owens announced earlier today the Grand Opening of Country Treasures, a shop located at 120 South Main Street in Lamar, Colorado. She’ll be welcoming guest vendors and an author at her store for the event on September 17, 2011, to coincide with the Lamar Fall Festival, an annual event in the community.
Country Treasures located next door to Crafter’s Corner, on the west side of Main Street, offers a wide selection of antique furniture, treasures and collectibles as well as many handmade gift items, western decorator accessories, handmade jewelry and an old fashioned candy counter. Owens has planned a full spectrum of events for the day, including door prizes, drawings and a treasure hunt on the premises. You won’t want to miss out on these prizes!
Owens announced today that local author, Oris George will be showing his recent publication, “Along the Back Roads of Yesterday” and available for the Grand Opening to sign copies purchase on the site.
Owens invites visitors of her open house to join others along Main Street for the Lamar Fall Festival as many street venders, local cottage industries and small businesses around the area will be celebrating with tables of their product and services available along the sidewalks that day. She readily admits that her side of the street is busiest these days as other local businesses have opened the previously empty store fronts and brought their businesses to Main Street. New businesses on Main Street, particularly this block mean all the store fronts are occupied with activities and business, creating a lively center for the community.
When asked what brings business to her little shop, she maintains that constant marketing and advertizing has kept new people stopping by and brought former customers back to see what’s new in Country Treasures. Owens has requested the assistance of local marketing experts and entities to help promote her business and others. Her requests and the marketing that results from those requests brings people and business into the community.
“Promotion is what this small town needs. We just have to get the word out that there are booming little businesses on Main Street and the people will come,” says Owens. “Come visit our side of Main Street and you’ll see how much fun it is to shop downtown Lamar, Colorado again!”
