“As an independent bookstore, engaging in the community is our bread-and-butter,” noted Elizabeth Young, owner of Commonplace Reader Yardley, Board Secretary of Experience Yardley, and a sponsor of the #ShopLocalYardley 2nd Saturday event. “Yardley has so many unique independent businesses like ours, some that are new and some that have been here for generations. But all of us feel as if we are part of the community.”
Elizabeth continued, “Yardley’s downtown is a special place where families come to make memories for tomorrow, to learn, to grow, and have some fun!”
The event is happening on November 9 in downtown Yardley with businesses and organizations hosting a variety of experiences at different times during the day. The full schedule of the #ShopLocalYardley 2nd Saturday Yardley event can be found at 2ndSaturdayYardley on Facebook as well as on posters throughout downtown Yardley.
