The following is from The Maplewood Village Alliance.

The Maplewood Village Alliance has announced a special customer appreciation day on Saturday, November 14 in celebration of being voted New Jersey’s favorite Downtown!

Maplewood was voted the #1 downtown in New Jersey in a bracket-style competition run by New Jersey Monthly and sponsored by Kings Supermarket. Up against some big name towns in each round, Maplewood prevailed and we think that’s something to celebrate!

“It’s time to celebrate this great win – Best Downtown in the entire state. It was a fun contest and we bested some pretty impressive downtowns. Thanks for all for your enthusiastic support, voting week after week to victory. We do have the best downtown and now more New Jerseyans know what’s special about Maplewood,” Maplewood’s Mayor Vic DeLuca said.

“Wee have 100 14″ glowing white balloons which will be lining the streets,” said MVA’s Julie Doran. “It will be very pretty and festive!”

Here is a detailed list of everything going on during the celebration:

  • Beacon Jewelers with: 30% off sterling silver fashion jewelry, Majorica, Honora, Charles Garnier, Thistle and Bee & Andrea Candela
  • Hopscotch at Home with 20% off any one item (excluding personalization)
  • Salvage Style with 15% off everything in the store and Prosecco while you shop!
  • Maplewood Pride on sale at Perch Home and free “I love Maplewood” totes at No 165

There are also a ginger beer tasting, a free karate class,  happy hour and dinner specials and more.

The Ricalton Square festivities will run from 5 to 6 pm and include music by DJ Jimmy B, special guests including Mayor Vic DeLuca, free pizza from Roman Gourmet and Village Trattoria, hot chocolate and popcorn courtesy of Keller Williams Midtown Direct, and a few more fun surprises.

“Some folks were surprised by our win but those who know Maplewood were not. Maplewood is a special place. Yes, it is charming, yes our shops and restaurants are wonderful and unique, but mostly it’s the people. This is our way of thanking everyone for their support, during this contest and throughout the year,” said Doran.
