–Complimentary salon services – stop in and get a quick holiday style or make-up

finishing touches for that upcoming holiday party

“Holiday shopping should be a fun experience, not a stressful one,” says Shorewood BID Executive Director Jim Plaisted. “Our businesses are ready to put the fun back into it, by helping people relax and enjoy themselves as they shop for one-of-a-kind gifts.”

 

The Shorewood Business Improvement District was established by commercial property owners and the Village of Shorewood in 1999 to promote the neighborhood as a premier destination for retail and service businesses to locate and thrive.
