The “Passport To Shopping Deltaville” retailers cooperative was formed in November 2012 to promote shopping throughout the eastern part (Deltaville, Hardyville and Hartfield) of Middlesex County.
Passport To Shopping Deltaville is a group of retail businesses that range from Coffmans’ On The Coast in Hartfield to Boaters’ Boutique at Deltaville Yachting Center near Stingray Point.
“Our next shopping event, ‘Deltaville Romp At The Rivah,’ will be on Saturday, April 13, with door prizes, open house fun and sale pricing at each shop,” said Grimm.
A fun feature of the April shopping event will be the “Best Hat Prize.” Shoppers are encouraged to wear their favorite spring bonnet and shop owners will take pictures and then award a gift certificate for the ‘Best Hat’ of the day.
“The great thing about the Passport To Shopping Deltaville retailers group is that it brings us together, gives us a chance to share ideas and encourage each other as business owners,” Grimm said. “In this challenging economy it is refreshing to get new inspiration from each other as well as excited shoppers.”
“As a group, we just have more impact,” said Raynell Smith of Nauti Nell’s in Deltaville. “We can advertise less expensively, and having events gives customers a good excuse to go shopping.
The business members of the group are Olive For Yoga, J&W Seafood, Latitudes, Coastal Comfort Sleep Boutique, Carter’s Cottage Consignments, Coffman’s on the Coast, Wilton Cottage, Savita Pets, Hair Etc. & Gifts, Nauti Nell’s, The Crabby Couple Gift Shop, Hammer Time Marine, West Marine, Pat’s Gallery & Gifts, and Boater’s Boutique.
