LEXINGTON, Va. (WDBJ7) The Lexington Woman's Club is encouraging you to come to town and shop Saturday.

The Third annual Shop Til You Drop is intended to encourage local shopping for the holidays. Club members will be around town wearing purple to guide shoppers not just to stores, but also local restaurants that are taking part.

"We all know you can order things on line," says
Julie Goodrich of the Lexington Woman's Club. "But this means a lot to the community to shop locally, and they have wonderful items for your table for Thanksgiving, for Christmas presents, for unique gifts, so we hope that people will try to do most of their shopping locally."

Businesses will be making contributions to the Woman's Club's local community projects with the money they bring in.
