LAUREL, Miss. (WDAM) - A heat advisory is in the forecast for Laurel, but it has nothing to do with the weather.

The Summer Sale Advisory just finished its third day of hot deals in downtown Laurel. Almost three dozen businesses have participated in the initiative, which ends Sunday.

Laurel Main Street spearheaded the sales initiative to increase business downtown.

The non-profit was founded in 2007 to revitalize the central business district of Laurel.

Keri Rowell, Laurel Main Street board member/chair of the promotions committee, said she saw the initiative as an opportunity for people to come to the city.

“It’s always a good time to shop in downtown Laurel,” Rowell said.

Rowell is part of a family business located downtown: Lott Furniture. She is satisfied with what the promotion has done in her neck of the woods.

“I would say it’s a success,” Rowell said. “I think that anytime we get people downtown, it’s a success.”
