Girls Night Out draws shoppers to city

Amanda Smith, of Brookhaven, ponders purchasing a blouse at Vibe Clothing Company on East Cherokee Street Thursday. This is Smith’s third time shopping during Girls Night Out, an event sponsored by the Brookhaven-Lincoln County Chamber of Commerce. Shoppers — mostly women — exchange their GNO ticket for a coupon book filled with discounts from more than 30 local merchants. Half the coupons are good through Saturday, while others are good through the summer.
