Hundreds downtown for festive holiday shopping

Local merchants get the jump on the season

Pleasanton's downtown came alive over the weekend with special holiday events ranging from "Earlier Than the Bird" special sales at 22 downtown merchants from 7 to 11 a.m. to afternoon and evening strolls complete with wine, beer, music and tasty samplings.

Hundreds turned out at downtown stores and restaurants as the events, sponsored by the Pleasanton Downtown Association, got a head start on Black Friday and Cyber Monday Friday and next Monday, which cater to national retail chains and Internet shoppers.

Even Santa stopped by so that children could share their gift lists and parents could snap a few photos for the scrapbook.

Nice to see. This is another excellent win-win tie-up between commerce and exercise. It's great for merchants and consumers alike!
