Wicked Chic, a new destination for creative shopping in downtown Manchester, will open this Thursday as part of Imagine Main Street's Downtown Holiday Festival.
The event is scheduled for 6 p.m. to 9 p.m . on Thursday, Dec. 6, and will provide an opportunity to enjoy shopping, music, art exhibits, crafts and wine tasting in downtown Manchester as it is decked out for the holidays!
Wicked Chic, which will be located at 974 Main Street, is the brainchild of a number of local creatively inspired, artistically driven entrepreneurs who have come together to collectively open the doors to an alternative shopping experience. The store will sell vintage clothing and accessories, furnishings and unique art, outlandish and funky fashion with a cup of coffee or a spot of tea along with a book. The grand opening includes moonshine tasting by Onyx Moonshine. Wicked Chic is the first business to open as a result of a pop-up store initiative developed by a partnership of Imagine Main Street, the Downtown Manchester Special Services District and the Town of Manchester.
