After a successful Holiday Tree Lighting ceremony this First Friday in December The Berwyn Devon Business & Professional Association First Friday planning committee, consisting of Nick Vandekar, Gina Galli of Beadeologie and Susan Holmes of Allegiance Bank met to begin plans for the 2010 program for First Fridays in Berwyn, PA.
Nick Vandekar, a local Realtor and President of the Business and Professional Association said he hopes that in 2010 we will see local retail businesses and restaurants work together to market Berwyn as a place to shop and dine and to benefit from the First Friday program that was launched at the beginning of 2009. Berwyn is a place filled with opportunities for local residents with a theater, art and antiques shops, restaurants, cafes, bakeries, craft stores, sports equipment, auto dealers, hairdressers for men and women with attached spa treatments, etc., with plenty to do and see around this historic village.
Plans for 2010 hope to include a series of three summer concerts in Berwyn that will bring customers to our local merchants. Any local business looking for a way to market itself may want to consider sponsoring these concerts.
