Forget the tricks this Halloween, local boutiques are giving lots of treats to shoppers at the annual “Bootique Crawl”.

Ten different shops in the Wabash Valley will be offering special deals, give-a-ways and fun to shoppers October 22-24.

Although each boutique is independently owned they have combined efforts to promote the event and each other.

“It’s incredible in this town,” says Willow Gift & Home owner Heather Wolf. “I have talked to other business owners in other towns and people don’t play nice together all the time and here everyone wants other stores to do well. We are all different and we all are independent. We all want to be successful but we all work together. I am just amazed.”

In addition to regular shopping hours, each boutique will be open extended hours during a a special Late Night Kick-Off Party on October 22 from Noon – 8pm.

Shoppers are encouraged to pick up a punch card at any participating location during the crawl. At each location shoppers will receive a punch; completed punch cards will be entered to WIN one of 10 different “Gift Casket” prizes.
