Our view: Check out Holiday Open House Saturday

Published 4:08 pm Wednesday, November 4, 2009

The weather outside is frightful, but inside it’s so delightful. At least in Greenville this Saturday.

Sure, Christmas is probably the last thing on anyone’s mind (what with trying to gulp down the last remainder of Halloween candy), but there’s no time like now to start snagging gifts before waiting until the last minute.

This Saturday’s Holiday Open House affords the perfect opportunity to take advantage of some special sales at stores in Greenville.
