Looking for a little retail therapy? The Spring Shopping Stroll in La Grange is just what you need; experts report that visiting your favorite boutique can enhance your mood.
Some brain-fueled happiness can be found at participating shops and restaurants on Saturday, April 15 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. as the La Grange Business Association organizes a feel-good shopping adventure with free gifts, discounts or one-day-only offers at local businesses.
Studies show that shopping, especially for gifts, may boost serotonin, the happy chemical in our bodies associated with feelings of well-being. Denise Oros, the owner of Linnea Jewelers, says she sees the mood enhancing properties of shopping from her customers on a regular basis. “We bring both a smile and a sparkle to La Grange,” she said.
Starting at 10 a.m., colorful free tote bags will be distributed to the first 100 shoppers who begin their stroll at Linnea Jewelers at 23 S. Ashland, the event’s presenting sponsor. Shoppers can visit participating merchants to receive special offers and/or free gifts with purchase, while supplies last. Some restrictions may apply.
A map to all the participating locations will be available on the free La Grange mobile app, available for download in the Apple App Store or Google Play. Shoppers may also pick up a map at participating shops soon.
