Downtown shops host “Open House”


Holiday Open House in Historic Downtown Clarksville 

Holiday shoppers can jumpstart the season with an afternoon of leisurely shopping in Historic Downtown Clarksville today, opting not to wait until the traditional post-Thanksgiving Day start of the Christmas shopping season.

Antique shops, clothing stores, jewelers, and numerous specialty shops will open their doors Sunday from noon to 6 p.m.

Shoppers can also choose to break from shopping with refreshing stops at several local eateries in the downtown district.
