Corning Shopping Discounts on 12.12.12

CORNING (WENY) -- Forget Black Friday and even Cyber Monday, local shoppers can expect to see price slashing in honor of today's date, 12-12-12.

Today, 12 market street stores and nine on the regional shopping trail will have specials in honor of the numerically significant date. 

Each special revolves around the number 12. Some stores are offering one day $12 specials, 12% off of certain items, gifts with 12 dollar purchases and if it's your birthday today, more price slashing at some stores.

It's a way for the gaffer district to join together and encourage people to shop local.

"It's something that we can all promote together and it's something that all the businesses on this street strive to do," said Pure Design Manager, Kate Foss.

Courtney Leonberger, Owner of Posh Boutique says she hopes this special brings awareness to the stores on Market street.  "I am just hoping this holiday season is another opportunity for people to get In and experience stores that they've never been in before."

"I am so excited because I can save more money and get more gifts for people because it makes them happy to get stuff," said shopper Kaylaura Allington.
