If there’s one skill that we’ve learned during this time of COVID-19 it’s how to be creative. Back in the old days (you know, way back just a few months ago) one of the great things about actually visiting one of Ridgeland’s many unique shops was the sheer beauty of the storefront windows and the interesting ways the retailers displayed their wares (One of our favorites has always been the wrapped hangers at the popular Libby Story in Renaissance at Colony Park.) Well, leave it to Ridgeland’s retail sector to step it up even more and deliver a satisfying shopping experience now in these unprecedented times. Here are 4 ways that Ridgeland retailers are making it easier for you to purchase gifts, clothing, garden supplies and whatever your heart desires.
1. ONLINE SHOPPING
Many retailers have taken their inventories online to make shopping at home a breeze. Check out your favorite store’s website, Instagram feed or Facebook page and you may find the perfect spring outfit.
