Following the success of an autumn-themed shopping event in October, 28 members of the Hillsboro Uptown Business Association (HUBA) and Highland County Small Businesses have teamed up for another event called Take Me Home For The Holidays on Saturday, Nov. 30, in conjunction with the nationwide Small Business Saturday.

Heather Hughes of Mother Clucker’s Farmhouse in New Vienna, an organizer of the event, said that, “With the success we had during the tour in October, we decided to do it again on Small Business Saturday. This time we will be doing a countywide giveaway.”

Hughes explained that the participating merchants will have punch cards available for customers to pick up.

“They need to visit 10 of the stores to be eligible for entry into the giveaway.” Hughes said, adding that the prizes total “over $1,000 in gift cards and products.”

Small Business Saturday, celebrates the impact small businesses have on communities across the country, according to a HUBA news release.

In addition to many familiar businesses, the event will include a new store, The Mystery Shoppe, which opened last month. Owner and HUBA President Joe Mahan described The Mystery Shoppe, located at 110 S. High St. in Hillsboro, as, “a menagerie of items, collectibles, home decor, a used book section, jewelry, trinkets and such. The mystery is that you will never know what you might find there.”
