  Original Published: 12/5/2013Hundreds of shopper's braved winter conditions and lined the street's of downtown Bucyrus Thursday evening, for the town's annual candlelight shopping night. Downtown streets were lined with luminaries, carolers roamed the sidewalks and free carriage rides were provided, as downtown businesses stayed open late for an event many locals look forward to every Christmas season. Downtown businesses also look forward to special shopping night, for both an influx of customer's and to provide holiday entertainment and sales. Joshua Leitzy, a manager at "The Amish Vault" says, "It's always one of our best night's of the year." Leitzy added that the store charms guests with a holiday music performance every half hour during the event and sell's an abundance of hot chocolate and specialty coffees. The success that area businesses experience during shopping night also encourages entrepreneur's at new area pursuits. Natlie Norman will open her downtown business "Norman's Niche" next year and says the event was a great way to generate some buzz. Bucyrus resident Sophie McAdam's also says her family is opening a store called "The Sign Shop" that is expected to open on Friday. The 3-hour event took over downtown Bucyrus from 5 to 8 p.m. and is expected to return next holiday season.
