You've done it again, even though you swore this year would be different: you've put off your holiday shopping until the last minute. You could brave the malls and big box stores filled with crushing throngs of your fellow down-to-the-wire shoppers all scrambling for the last one of whatever mass-produced gift is in vogue this year. Or, you could relax, enjoy a stroll, and keep more money in your local economy while getting unique gifts that you'd never find at Target. East Greenwich's Main Street Merchants have a solution for the conscientious procrastinator. Their Downtown Holiday Stroll is this Thursday, December 22, with participating merchants open until 8pm. There will be festive lights, carolers, and the chance to feel that -- for once -- last minute gift buying can be a pleasant experience.
