What have we been up to?
Start of the Holiday Season
Can you believe it its already December!? It has been a couple of busy weeks here at the shop, and we wanted to take a few minutes to fill you all in on what we’ve been up to! Starting with the kickoff to the holiday season Downtown Indiana hosted the annual Wine Walk which was held on November 4th. With over 12 local wineries and downtown retailers, individuals were able to shop local businesses while sampling wines! 700 Shop was so excited to be hosting Twisted Vine Winery this year! If you missed out on buying their wine this time, check out their website here!
New Products & Website Development
With the holiday season underway, our next big project at the shop was to gear up for Christmas. And did we ever, with all of our new shipments coming in, we have one of the largest selections of men’s, women’s, and children’s clothing in Downtown Indiana. Our North Face room is completely stocked with warm winter clothes for the entire family! This season, new to our store, we also are carrying Johnston & Murphy and Hart Schaffner & Marx. We love to carry products that we trust and with training in product knowledge our staff is prepared to answer your questions to help you make the best decision in your purchases and to help you know you are taking something home that you will love!

Events Around Town
Love of Life Bridal Showcase
We want to give a quick shout out to the Love of Life Campaign! This past month we had the opportunity to participate in Love of Life Wedding Showcase held at the S&T Arena on November 12th, and we had a blast! Thanks to IRMC for their continued efforts. In a excerpt from their site – “Funds raised by the Love of Life Campaign are used to educate and promote the early detection and diagnosis of breast cancer and assist with the purchase of the center’s digital mammography equipment at both the hospital and community locations”. Thanks for letting us be a part of a great event!
Light Up Night
This year, Downtown Indiana rolled out the red carpet for a winter wonderland, and we are so excited! The holiday season downtown happens to be one of our favorite times of the year, and this year our excitement went through he roof when we found out that there would be an entire festival during the season! When we found out about the festival, we jumped on board to help out however we could, “It’s a Wonderful Life” festival is taking place up through Christmas at IRMC Park. With a 30ft LIVE tree, visits from Santa, and vendors to shop from- there is so much to do in Downtown Indiana. While you’re out visiting the festival make sure to check out the local retailers and restaurants!
If you have been downtown at night, you may have also noticed the large lights from Blue Spruce greeting you throughout town. With the help of local individuals, the town was able to update and use the lights to bring holiday cheer. While you’re at IRMC Park, turn around and check out 700 Shop! You will see two large wreaths gleaming from our window front! A big thanks to Moreau Sign Company for helping us get our wreaths up!
Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday
We had such a great turnout for this past weekends events, and we can not thank you all enough for your continued support of shopping locally all year round. Black Friday buzzed by with great deals and happy shoppers. But one of our favorite days of the year happens on Small Business Saturday. SBS is sponsored by American Express and gives us the day to give back to our customers for shopping locally. This year we offered some great deals and we also participated in the Downtown Dollars promotion that gave back 1 Downtown Dollar for every $10 spent. The dollars are eligible to be used now and can be redeemed through the holiday season at locally participating businesses.
If you happened to snag yourself a “Shop Small” tote, you can use it through 12/24 and receive 25% off any regular priced item throughout our store *Excludes TNF, J&M, HSM*
