Hunt down sales, swag
during Ladies Night Out

Observer Staff Writer
Shoppers, whether they're hunter's windows or just looking for a bargain, are invited to hunt down sales this Friday in the Village of Romeo.
The Romeo Merchants, Restaurants and Professionals (MRP) Association is sponsoring Ladies Night Out in downtown Romeo from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. on Nov. 15.
The annual sales event takes place during the opening weekend of deer hunting season to give those with family or friends out hunting a chance to do some shopping.
MRP President and Ladies Night Out co-Coordinator Connie Connelly said events like this help promote supporting local businesses, especially with the holiday season around the corner.
"We've been doing this for years, even before the new MRP," she said. "While the men are out hunting deer, the ladies will be out hunting deals."
MRP Treasurer Carol Humphreys said a majority of the 27 MRP members have provided goods to create 100 "swag bags" for the event. The bags will be given to shoppers who donate a warming item such as hats, gloves or scarves that will be given to the Samaritan House in Washington Township. Donations can be dropped off at Romeo Accountants at 122 W. Washington St.
Stores will also provide incentives for ladies to peruse their wares. Shoppers can find special sales as well as treats like massages, fortune tellers or wine at stores and restaurants alike.
"The whole theme is ladies, have a good time," Humphreys said. "It's a Friday night, kick back."
In addition to the MRP, the event is supported by the Romeo Downtown Development Authority and the Greater Romeo-Washington Chamber of Commerce.
The MRP is a 501c6 organization made up of local businesses and organizations within the Village of Romeo that aim to promote commerce in the village.
