Cotswold. What a nice little nook of a neighborhood, with its big box stores and suburban sprawl. It's comforting to know I can grab a Starbucks before heading to a yoga class or grocery shop while the dog is groomed at the local Petsmart. Ah, convenience.
Starting tomorrow, I can add worldly goods, crazy awesome area rugs and food products from other countries that I don't need but will definitely buy when World Market celebrates its grand opening in the Cotswold Village.
Thursday begins a weekend-long celebration featuring a ribbon-cutting ceremony, free stuff (woo-hoo!) and a visit from Rebecca Gordon, Contributing Editor of Southern Living Magazine on Saturday. Gordon is the author of the Southern Living Tailgating book and will be whipping up Red Velvet Coca-Cola Cupcakes and Wrapped Muffuletta Sliders as part of the grand opening festivities.
Here's the rundown:
Thursday, Sept. 12 at 9 a.m.
Ribbon cutting ceremony with city officials and members of the local chamber of commerce to officially mark the opening of World Market.
Saturday, Sept. 14 from 12-2 p.m.
Rebecca Gordon will host a live cooking demo and food tastings inside the store.
All weekend long the first 200 customers through the store each day will receive a World Market reusable tote and on Sunday, patrons will have a chance to receive more in-store freebies. Three cheers for consumerism! And free stuff!
World Market is located at 330 S. Sharon Amity Road, Charlotte, NC 28211. For more information, visit www.worldmarket.com
