Downtown Retailers Offer Half-Off Deals During Arts, Beats & Eats

Participating retailers in downtown Royal Oak will discount select items in stores 50 percent to celebrate Ford Arts, Beats & Eats.

Downtown Royal Oak will be the place to be for shopaholics during Labor Day Weekend as Ford Arts, Beats & Eats today announced it has partnered with many downtown retailers for a special promotion during this year’s festival, Aug.31 – Sept. 3.

Beginning on the first day of the festival through Labor Day, participating downtown Royal Oak retailers will offer customers 50 percent off of select items at its stores.  The promotion gives everyone the opportunity to enjoy Ford Arts, Beats & Eats as well as other entertainment and business establishments just outside of the festival footprint.

What are you kidding ? These retailers NEED to offer customer incentives to try and offset their losses during the Labor Day fiasco ! The only people who benefit from Arts, Beats, and Eats are the bars, restaurants (who do well enough without state sponsorship) and maybe some "city officials". As a resident, I get a free 'parking pass' to use within 200' of my home... maybe if I can find a spot that is. Who is paying for barricades on every street near downtown ? Who is paying for all the police protection, extra city services, clean up ? How much profit can downtown homeowners expect to share in ? It's time for Royal Oak to stop its public support of drunken revelry and make this the LAST Arts, Beats, and Eats.
