‘Crawl’ through Greensburg to celebrate Small Business Saturday

JoAnne Klimovich Harrop

Local retailers, restaurants and cultural attractions will be paired with area artists to celebrate Small Business Saturday on Nov. 26 at the first Greensburg Art & Shopping Crawl throughout the Downtown area.

This event is a collaboration of Think Greensburg!, Westmoreland Cultural Trust and The Westmoreland Museum of American Art. Each stop will feature artwork on display from local talent.

This is a great way to showcase art and fashion, says Kevin Miscik, owner of Lapels A Fine Mens Clothier, a chic men’s store located on Pennsylvania Avenue.

“Our store is kind of artsy anyway,” says Miscik, who stays on top of the latest style trends for guys. “It has a boutique feel and will be decorated over the top for Christmas. This event is a way to bridge the gap between the arts, such as the Palace Theatre and Seton Hill Performing Arts Center, and the great fashion and business district we have here.”

“We are thrilled to have an opportunity to work with The Westmoreland Museum of American Art and Think Greensburg! to support local and economic stimuli within the Downtown Greensburg area,” says Kelli Brisbane, Westmoreland Cultural Trust event coordinator. “This holiday, let’s start a new trend to shop small, spend local, eat local, enjoy local and support our local community.”

Greensburg Mayor Robert L. Bell will kick off the event at 11 a.m. at The Westmoreland. Throughout the day, visitors can tour Westmoreland Cultural Trust’s Incubator for the Arts working artists’ studios that house local and student artists and take part in family activities.

Free parking will be offered in the Bell Garage at 106 West Otterman St. from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Crawl-goers are encouraged to share their experience on social media via #GbgArtShoppingCrawl, #ShopGreensburg, #ShopSmall and #SmallBizSaturday.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
