Downtown Conway shops want you to choose them over big box stores

CONWAY, SC (WMBF) - Downtown Conway is full of unique local shops wanting to snag up customers looking to do their holiday shopping instead of having them spend at big box stores.

Many of the store owners and managers in downtown Conway who spoke to WMBF News said they had a successful weekend with Black Friday shoppers and those turning out to shop on Small Business Saturday.

Since Thanksgiving fell later on the calendar this year, shops have less time to entice customers to make a purchase. Conway Downtown Alive is looking to help shops by having them extend their hours every Thursday of the month of December.
