Monday is the new Saturday for local shopping in Beacon! Darryl’s Women’s Clothing Boutique is the latest boutique on Main Street to be Open 7 Days. Being open every day of the week is no small feat for a business as it requires staffing and effort. But it tends to be the ultimate goal for retail, as being open every day of the week is easy to remember when you want to visit your favorite shop without remembering individual schedules.
Open Hours and Dia: Beacon - Breaking Of Reliance
In the olden days (like, up until about last year), stores In Beacon closed on Tuesdays because the Dia:Beacon was closed on Tuesdays. The selection of Beacon by the museum launched the rebuilding of Beacon (which at the moment is in full swing). But with years of good press coverage, Beacon has grown as a destination town, bringing more foot traffic on different days, especially Monday holidays. Being that the weekend is naturally busy for a store, boutiques and restaurants would often close on Mondays as well, to recoup from the weekend and do paperwork and administrative tasks. That too has begun changing, with retail experimenting with opening on Mondays as well.
Parking On Mondays Also An Added Bonus!
Everyone knows that there’s no parking on the weekend. You can see our Guide For Free Parking to find which lots to park in. No parking is a great excuse for walking, however, and walking Main Street is fun on the weekend. So many people to see, and shops to visit.
Yet, when doing a bunch of errands, parking can be easier. Which is a benefit of being open on Mondays! Pictured here are 2 parking spots open near Mountain Top and Darryl’s on a Monday. As one of our readers, Rose Merando Story, pointed out, locals have been venturing out to shop on Mondays because there is more parking: “I've noticed the locals try to stay away from Main Street on the weekends because of the traffic and parking situation and they tend to shop on Monday's.”
Monday It Is
So, all you Beaconites reading this, venture out on a Monday and reward these stores with your purchase. It’s you who keeps them here! We all like window shopping, but if you want a pretty window to look at, you’ll walk through the door and get to know what is available inside. You will be SO surprised. Constantly.
PS: Can we discuss this jacket? Fundraiser Event Season is right around the corner, and Darryl’s Clothing Boutique will have your style. This jacket is easy to move your arms in, well shaped, and 20% off the already sale price of $79. You do the math.
