Kilgore merchants plan special events for holiday shoppers
Kilgore — Downtown Kilgore is expected to be flooded with holiday shoppers Saturday evening as crowds gather to take part in the city’s annual Mingle & Jingle, according to shop owners participating in this year’s event.
“It was so packed in here last year. We have people (who come in) from Longview, Tyler and Henderson,” said Britnee Scalia, manager of the Crystal Spur Boutique which specializes in women’s clothing and accessories. “We get such a good response from the community and everyone in Kilgore.”
Most of the shops traditionally close at 5 or 5:30 p.m., but on Saturday they will reopen at 6 p.m. and remain open until the crowds clear out for the night, usually about 9 p.m.
