Stores and restaurants in downtown Waxhaw will be open later than usual this week, as the town celebrates a Valentine’s Day themed First Friday. The beginning of every month, the town holds a ‘First Friday’ event, based around a theme, where businesses stay open later.
This month, the event takes place Friday, Feb. 3 from 5 to 9:30 p.m., with free carriage rides and special deals at the different venues. Select bottles of wine will be half off at Maxwell’s, while people who buy two meals at Main Street Grill will get a free appetizer. Also the Bike Depot and Noma Salon will offer 10 percent off certain products, Mama Lena’s will give customers a 10 percent discount if they mention First Friday and the Waxhaw Reading Room will have collectibles at half price, with new and used books at 25 cents each.
