(FOX Providence) – If you still have holiday shopping to do, you don’t have to go far to find unique and special gifts for everyone on your list. For a different kind of shopping experience, try Downcity Providence.
Westminster Street is dotted with shops featuring great, local products. There are fabulous stores featuring fresh, local gourmet food to other retail spots filled to the brim with handmade items for the home, the body and more.
And if that isn’t reason enough to venture Downcity to check off those holiday wish lists, the city is offering free two hour parking at select meters nearby through Christmas. Plus, many merchants are participating in the Holiday Shopping Bingo, where you could win great prizes, just for buying things you love.
Personal Stylist Jill Marinelli joined The Rhode Show to show off some unique finds from the stores of Downcity Providence.
