Big changes coming to 2nd Street Market starting this weekend

The 2nd Street Market will host one of its most eventful weekends starting this Friday, June 1.

The market at 600 E. Second St. in downtown Dayton will re-launch its Sunday hours that were a hit during last year’s trial run — only this year, the Sunday hours will last through Dec. 31. But first, it will host special “First Friday” events Friday, and the following day, will welcome back a half-dozen  outdoor farmers market vendors on Saturday.

>>  A new juicery is coming to Dayton and its owners hope it will be first step in revitalizing neighborhood

“Sunday hours were such a success last season that we have decided to extend this program even further into the year,” 2nd Street Market Manager Jimmy Harless said in a release. “We always strive to address the needs of the community, whether it’s extending hours or hosting vendors who accept SNAP benefits.” 

>> 30 festivals in June: Strawberries, banana splits, sliders and more

On Friday, the Market will open be open from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. as usual, then will reopen from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. to be part of downtown Dayton’s “First Friday” festivities, hosting  live music and serving as a challenge location for the Great Dayton Adventure Race that evening.

Saturday marks the return of the Outdoor Farmers Market from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., when six vendors will set up just outside the market’s Second Street entrance. The fresh produce will be available through early October or thereabouts, depending on weather.

The outdoor vendors that will be at the Market are: Corner Hill Farms, Frieszell Liberty Garden, Garber Farm, Gypsy Chick Farm, Mile Creek Farm, and Harry’s Old Country Orchard. 

>> NEW TODAY: Worth the Drive: Here’s where you can spend the afternoon tubing the Mad River on the cheap

The kickoff of Sunday hours will give customers a chance to shop more than 40 vendors from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. There also will be an opportunity to milk a live dairy cow in celebration of National Dairy Month, market officials said. 

>> Peanut Shoppe’s new owner excited to own piece of city’s history

Last summer’s Summer Sunday Trial Run pleased both vendors and customers, according to surveys taken by Five Rivers MetroParks officials. Sunday attendance easily topped average Friday attendance, and about 90 percent of vendors reported that Sundays were profitable. The response “exceeded our three key performance indicators related to attendance, customer satisfaction and vendor sales expectations,” market officials said last October when they announced the added Sunday hours would return this summer.

Military brides in Dayton can get a free wedding dress this week

A local organization is giving away wedding dress for military brides this week.

The third annual Marry Me Military for all military brides will take place on Sunday, May 27 in the Grand Ballroom at Holiday Inn Dayton/Fairborn. The event, offered by the United Service Organizations -Central and Southern Ohio, is open to 75 brides from noon to 3 p.m. The event has provided military brides with more than 300 free bridal gowns.

» Best state for veterans? Ohio isn’t on the list

Each bride can bring two guests. To be eligible for a complimentary wedding dress, brides must be an active duty, guard or reserve military member getting married, or the fiancé of an active duty, guard or reserve military member. If their military member is deployed, they must bring a copy of his/her orders and a short letter of introduction, along with their confirmation e-mail to be granted access to the event.

“We are excited to be able to provide wedding dresses to our military brides on their special day,” said Mia Walthers, center manager of WPAFB USO. “Often funds are low for our military members, so providing a new gown is one way our USO can show support to our new brides and help offset the expenses of the wedding. In the past, several brides told us they would have never been able to afford a dress like the one they got at the Marry Me Military events.”

Deadline to register is May 25.

Cyber Monday: 5 things to know before you start shopping

Don’t expect much work to get done at the office Monday.

Your co-workers -- and, let’s be honest here, probably you, too -- will no doubt be surfing the web in search of Cyber Monday shopping deals. 

>> Read more trending news

Cyber Monday is when a variety of retailers trot out some of the season’s best online bargains. 

While there was more of a tech focus in its early days, that’s no longer the case. Hop online this Cyber Monday and you’ll see just about anything you can imagine – clothes, computers, toys and even vacations – marked down to must-have prices. 

Here are five things you need to know about Cyber Monday: 

1. Shop early: Many deals involve products that are only available in limited quantities. That means no rain checks. Once they’re gone, they’re gone. Experienced online shoppers tend to stake out the store’s website days in advance, adding the items they want to their carts. That way, they’re ready to pounce early on Monday, before stock is depleted.

2. What’s popular: Of the consumers surveyed by BlackFriday.com and Offers.com, 22 percent said clothing topped their shopping lists this Cyber Monday. Tablets, laptops, PCs and TVs were next, coming in at 21 percent, followed by smart-home devices (17 percent), gift cards (15 percent), toys (14 percent) and travel (11 percent). 

3. Best deals: WalletHub.com says Kohl’s has the steepest discounts, with prices marked down by 66.32 percent, on average. JCPenney is in hot pursuit, according to the site, with discounts averaging 66.3 percent. Other retailers on the list with a Central Texas presence include Sears (52.78 percent) and Macy’s (45.58 percent). 

4. Stack coupons: More coupons, more savings. Many chains allow shoppers to use multiple coupons or promo codes on the same transaction, a practice known as “stacking.” Kohl’s, for instance, lets shoppers use up to four promo codes in a single online transaction.

5. In-store pickup: If your purchase isn’t big enough to qualify for free shipping, consider same-day in-store pickup. It’s free, and Best Buy and other merchants often have online orders ready for in-store pickup in as little as an hour or two (although it might take a little longer during the busy holiday season). If your item isn’t available for same-day in-store pickup, see if there’s a ship-to-store option. Walmart and others don’t typically charge for this service. They’ll send an email or text when your purchase arrives from the central warehouse.

Target debuts first 'next-gen' store

It’s a first for Target: The red-themed retailer recently unveiled its first “next-gen” store in Richmond, Texas, near Houston.

>> Read more trending news 

The 124,000-square-foot store opened last week. It’s the first of hundreds of stores the retailer plans to open in the next two years.

“With our next generation of store design, we’re investing to take the Target shopping experience to the next level by offering more elevated product presentations and a number of time-saving features,” Target’s chairman and CEO Brian Cornell said earlier this year. “The new design for this Houston store will provide the vision for the 500 reimagined stores planned for 2018 and 2019, with the goal of taking a customized approach to creating an enhanced shopping experience.”

One of the differences shoppers may notice between the new Target design and other locations is how the “next-gen” store is two concepts within one.

According to Target spokespersons, for the convenience of the on-the-go-shopper, one side of the store comes with grocery items and pick-up for those who prefer to order online.

The other side of the Target store is similar to a virtual department store, according to Target representatives. Shoppers can find items from Chip and Joanna Gaines’ new “Hearth & Hand” collection in that section of the store.

“We wanted to tailor the experience to what shoppers are looking for,” store manager Shannon Wolford said, according to the Houston Chronicle.

Winfrey’s annual list will be featured in the December Issue of “O” (the Oprah Magazine) with special discount codes to use on Amazon.com and other websites.

“What Oprah always challenges us to do is to find some new brands, some indie brands, mom-and-pop kind of brands. We always have a fabulous mix of tried and true, and big people, but we also like to infiltrate new brands and also brands made in the USA,” Glassman told the Associated Press.

This year’s gift guide also features a variety of price points, including a $2,000, 55-inch Samsung “The Frame” TV that literally “transforms your TV into a work of art” and a $199 double hammock.
