“We have a lot of businesses that are geared up and ready to go for the holidays,” said Scarlato.
Among the many highlights is pucciManuli, which features toys and gifts for children of all ages, Styche, a contemporary women’s boutique which is offering significant discounts on current season merchandise, and Past Present Future, a fun and funky gift shop.
