Get ready for the biggest shopping event of the year for Settlers’ Green Outlet Village and the entire North Conway area.  Now in its 14th year, the Bring A Friend Shopping event on November 7-9 will welcome shoppers, mostly women, from throughout New England and northeast Canada for a weekend of great shopping, dining and partying with friends and family.  Settlers’ Green will be the hub of activity that includes free giveaways, thousands of dollars of door prizes, free beer tasting, belly dancing, free yoga and more!

The majority of activities take place on Saturday, November 8, including the 2000 shopping bag giveaway starting at 8 a.m. in the Courtyard. Each canvas bag is stuffed with free products, samples and exclusive coupons to the many of the 60+ outlet stores and specialty shops at Settlers' Green, as well as offers to local ski resorts including Attitash, Cranmore and Wildcat. One "golden bag" is stuffed with a $500 Shopping Spree to Settlers' Green.

"This year, we're seeing strong offers from a good mix of children's stores, high-end fashion and footwear stores," said Laura Tuveson, Event & Marketing Assistant at Settlers' Green, who is coordinating the event. "We distribute all 2000 bags within about one hour, so come early for best chance at receiving one."  If shoppers want to secure a giveaway bag, a limited quantity will be available by reservation online only at until Monday, November 3. Each reserved bag is $5 with all proceeds going to Angels & Elves, a local charity that supplies children in need with gifts for the holidays.

"If shoppers miss out on opportunities to receive a bag, we'll have coupon recycling stations set up throughout the shopping center this year," said Tuveson. "We want to maximize the chance to expose all participating store offers and keep the shoppers happy, of course."

Other activities on Saturday start at 10 a.m. including music by DJ Kristen Corrigan, a performance by "Imari & The Sahara Desert Dancers" at 10:30 a.m., a Tuckerman Brewing Company promotion near Brandli's Pizza and live music near Reebok.
