Church Point to hold inaugural Bells in Buggy Town event
Two local business owners have teamed up to bring a new holiday shopping event to Church Point from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Nov. 21.
Allison Fontenot said, “The devastation brought from the recent hurricanes and COVID-19 has caused our businesses and community to suffer. The shopping event is meant to help the businesses in our small town and to get people to shop local and show their support.”
Fontenot and Hannah Simon are organizing Church Point’s Inaugural Bells in Buggy Town shopping event with the help of other local businesses. More than 45 businesses will participate in the event, and the participating businesses will offer sales and specials during the hours of the event.
Each time a customer purchases from one of the participating businesses, they will receive a sticker, stamp or signature from that business. For every tenth stamp, the shopper will turn in their stamp card to the business where they receive their tenth stamp. At the end of the event, one winner will be drawn for the grand prize, and the prize is a collection of gifts from each one of the participaing businesses.
Simon is the owner of Lee Lee and Me and creator and producer of the one of a kind Lee Lee and Me Paci, and Fontenot is the owner of Southern Bebé Fashion and Co, an online children’s boutique that features clothing, accessories and gifts. The two women work closely together in the local baby merchandise market.
Fontenot said she and Simon decided that Church Point needed a fun and uplifting event to help bring the community back together.
