    October 2019 Nantucket Island —Chamber of Commerce President, David Martin, announced that the inaugural Cobblestones & Cranberries shopping event will launch this year. Timed to coordinate with Nantucket’s annual Cranberry Festival, this event will add to the seasonal excitement as the island transitions to cooler weather after a blistering hot and busy summer.

    “The Chamber is excited about a new downtown event being introduced on Sunday October 13 — Cobblestones & Cranberries! This new downtown ‘shopping event’ will coordinate with this year’s Cranberry Festival and is produced in tandem with the newly re-energized Nantucket Downtown Business Association. Many downtown businesses will participate in this inaugural event,” said Martin. 

    The Nantucket Downtown Business Association recently re-organized as part of the Nantucket Chamber. One of its first initiatives will be this exciting new shopping Cobblestones & Cranberries mercantile initiative which evolved as a result of its initial meetings. The Association is being led by Island Pharmacy’s Allan Bell and Don Freedman of Freedman's of Nantucket. Under Bell and Freedman’s leadership the island can anticipate a newly vibrant business environment. 

    Cobblestones & Cranberries shopping event is open to all downtown merchants and participation is free. The event will be supported by Nantucket Chamber’s promotional materials and media campaign so prospective participants should sign up immediately. 

    To participate, merchants should sign up using this form. Participating businesses will be promoted through various advertising and digital marketing promotions. Participants are encouraged to offer price discounts, special event day sales and provide a giveaway for grand prizes awarded to shoppers at the Cobblestones & Cranberries wrap-up gathering late afternoon at Or, The Whale.
