Downtown Franklin Association Announces Inaugural “Local Love” Event for Williamson County Shoppers  

Williamson County Residents Will Receive Exclusive Deals and Promotions for Shopping Local in Downtown Franklin This Valentine’s Day

FRANKLIN Tenn. (January 31, 2024) –  This Valentine’s Day, the Downtown Franklin Association (DFA) will be hosting its inaugural “Local Love” for residents of Williamson County to take advantage of special discounts by shopping and dining locally in Franklin’s beloved historic district.

“With the tremendous growth that has taken place downtown over the years, DFA wants to show special appreciation for the locals that continue to shop and dine here as the district grows busier,” shares the DFA Managing Director, Heidi Hood. “It’s the support of the locals that shaped this district into the destination it is today, and the merchants collectively have rallied to thank them for this support and continue to offer them a great experience.”

Since its founding in 1984, the Downtown Franklin Association has spearheaded the revitalization of Franklin’s historic downtown core. Working in partnership with downtown property owners, business owners, preservationists, city and county government, and the Heritage Foundation of Williamson County, TN – the Downtown Franklin Association has helped create one of the nation’s Main Street success stories with a stunning collection of Victorian buildings and a host of accolades

“The achievements of this Main Street would not have been possible without the local stakeholders that sacrificed, donated, volunteered, and advocated for its intentional economic growth and development while preserving its historic charm.  We hope the residents of Williamson County will feel the warmth and appreciation the merchants have for them by enjoying a special experience downtown this coming Valentine’s Day,” states Heidi Hood.

Williamson County residents must show their ID at checkout (designated locations only) on Valentine’s Day to receive discounts from the local small businesses listed below.
