Downtown Decatur, GA Downtown Decatur, GA

Shop owners in downtown Decatur are teaming up once again this holiday season, offering shoppers special perks Thursdays in an effort to draw customers.

Terrific Thursdays got underway Thursday and run through Dec. 19, excluding Thanksgiving Day.

Customers who shop in Decatur on Thursdays will be treated to special in-store events, discounts and treats at more than 30 shops, restaurants and services.

Participating businesses will stay open late, offering beverages, snacks and special deals.

"They stop in and they may get a glass of wine at one location, and they'll come in here and get some sweets," said Weatherly Munroe, owner of Wild Oats & Billy Goats. "It's fun because they're really out to socialize as well, so it's really fun for everybody."

In December, Santa will join the fun, visiting shops and restaurants within the city limits.
