Norton Commons Magazine: Letter from the Editor – November 2021
While planning this edition’s letter, it occurred to us that many of you may wonder why we call our readers “Neighbor,” when in fact you may live outside of Norton Commons. You might have even wondered whether you received this publication by mistake. Fear not, dear reader, you’re on our mailing list purposely and for good reason. The reason is we consider you to be a part of our community, resident or not.
At Norton Commons, we are in the business of building community. For the past 20 years, we’ve designed and created a small town, built from the ground up. To date, our small town includes over 1600 households (and counting!), about 100 businesses, 3 schools, multiple parks and green spaces, and a host of community events which help tie things all together. Both residents and non-residents are invited to meet and mingle at neighborhood businesses and events, and seeing new faces is part of what makes Norton Commons such a vibrant place.
Norton Commons has become an ever-growing independent business hub. With over 20 new businesses announced in just the past 18 months, the neighborhood – and surrounding community – has shown up for our businesses in big ways. Local support has meant local success, and that’s something we all can rally behind. As we continue to grow and add new, exciting concepts, we hope that you’ll continue to support local.
This holiday season, we’re giving you two dates perfect for keeping your dollars close to home. On November 28, we’ll host Shop Small Business Saturday, and on December 4, we’ll open our doors for our annual Holiday Open House. Both dates promise loads of festive specials and plenty of holiday cheer (read on for details), but on December 4, we’ll also bring back our yearly Toys for Tots drive. In exchange for a new, unopened toy donation, you can enjoy a complimentary photo with Santa or a horse-drawn carriage ride, all for a good cause.
While you’re here, look for hints of some of our newest neighbors – Board & You, Watch Hill Proper, Yoga6, Quill’s Coffee, Waldo’s Chicken & Beer, and Fiesta Time – all opening within the next six months or so. Stop by Mini Chic, our new children’s boutique, or Pet Wants, a shop catering to furry friends. There are plenty of local options to check off your entire list, so make a day of it and plan to enjoy the neighborhood. Our independent business owners are sincerely grateful for your patronage.
If you’re tired of driving and want this type of convenience at your doorstep, we’re here for that too. There are ample available lots, including a couple in our coveted Oldham County section. Call our Sales Team today to get the full list of options and build your dream home: 502.412.5085. There’s also still time to get into one of next year’s Homearama houses, to be showcased to the public in September 2022.
Whether you live here, want to live here, or just love visiting, we’re always glad you stopped in. We wish you and your family a happy holiday season, and we hope to see you around the neighborhood soon.
