Shop. Music. Food.  Christmas at The Gateway Village!

The Gateway Village staff has been hard at work organizing The Christmas Market, a unique holiday shopping event hosting small "pop-up" shops and food trucks. It will be held December 6th from 12pm to 8pm, and 7th from 10am to 8pm. The large retail space in the north building, 836 N. Thompson Lane, will be home to many small businesses where you can purchase items. These shops include Dusty Brown Jewelry, Charmingly Southern, Perfectly Painted Furniture, Imaginary Girl, Stella and Dot,  VIP Magazine, and many more! Also take a look at a beautiful collection of original oil and acrylic artwork available for purchase. Button Bug Photography will be ready to snap that perfect picture for your Christmas cards!   We want you to be able to complete your holiday shopping for the special people in your life while you're here. 

Take a stroll along the storefronts of our south building, as many local non-profit organizations will decorate charming window displays as well!   These will be displayed until Christmas Day! 

Once you have completed your shopping, stop by The Gateway Village office for their open house! Take a tour of our condos and lofts and then grab a bite to eat at one of the food trucks. We will have our regulars like Puckett's Trolley, Miller's Grocery, YaYo's OMGand Delta Bound; but also try a few new ones, like Julia's Bakery, and Slow Hand Coffee. Be sure to look up their menus online and their arrival times on Facebook before hand to get a “taste” of what's to come!

Also, don't forget that we will have live music during evening hours of the weekend from Larry & Gay Pinkerton and the Eclectics, Seth Griffin, and Cali Stoltz.

 

We invite everyone to bring family and friends to do some shopping, have a nice lunch or dinner or a cup of coffee, and enjoy the festivities!

Won't You Be My Neighbor?

If you were a child of the 60’s and 70’s you may have seen Mister Rogers Neighborhood on television.  Mister Rogers would enter his home with a warm and friendly jingle that would welcome you and ask you to be his neighbor. As he made his way through the house he would put on his sneakers and sweater.  He began his day relaxed which set the tone.  Most of us begin our day with 2 cups of espresso and a smartphone.  The TV Guide once quoted, "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood makes us, young and old alike, feel safe, cared for and valued.... wherever Mister Rogers is, so is sanctuary" 

During the show Mister Rogers would take a walk up the street(without texting) and visit with other businesses and introduce himself to the new neighbors.  He never used a car since everything was located just a few steps away from home.  He would greet those along the way with a smile and was relaxed when visiting.  He would introduce those he met to others and tell about what they do and how they are valued in the community.   Mister Rogers knew how to build relationships with businesses and individuals. 

The Gateway Village is continuously growing and becoming a true neighborhood.  If you are up early enough you will catch some of the tenants walking their dog or working out in our gym.  Some will be arriving home from an overnight shift at one of the nearby hospitals.  All will greet you with warm smiles, and a friendly welcome.  They all love to tell about how much they enjoy their new home and lifestyle.   One even mentioned they felt as if they were always on vacation! 

As a mix-use development, The Gateway Village also includes retail shops and offices.  Businesses located at The Gateway Village are provided many opportunities to get to know each other and meet the tenants.  Having these opportunities paves the way for more growth at The Gateway Village and in Murfreesboro.  Building those long lasting relationships on a professional and individual level is what The Gateway Village is about.    

If you are looking for a new lifestyle, a new location for your office, retail shop or restaurant in 2013, you will want to take a look at The Gateway Village.  With the warmth of great neighbors and the perfect location in Murfreesboro for your business, I have to ask....

Won’t you be my neighbor?
