“Earlier than the BIRD”

Saturday, November 21, 2009

7am – 12noon

Downtown Ocean City, 6th to 11th Street along Asbury Avenue

With savings this great there won’t even be time to change out of your pajamas! No need to worry: merchants will be clad in their ‘jammies and free turkeys will be given away to shoppers in their early morning finest. Don’t worry about looking silly – think of this as Pajama Day (you know the one our kids get to have each year at school and we wish for that day to be a kid again) and Santa will be in his pj’s, too!

If you want to take a break from all the great deals and personal service feel free to stop by one of the Downtown’s restaurants for breakfast or lunch.

“I think people want to shop locally and support independently owned and operated stores,” said Marcia Shallcross, Executive Director of Main Street Ocean City. “Shoppers will have that opportunity at Earlier than the Bird and will find great deals and quality service at the over 100 shops in Downtown Ocean City, while having a fun shopping experience.”

“Get out early, check those names off your shopping list and this year you can sleep in the day after Thanksgiving! Don’t be a turkey – get our earlier than the bird!” concluded Shallcross.
