Brunch and Browse kicks off after first home football game

JONESBORO, AR (KAIT) -

Brunch and Browse Downtown kicked off following the Red Wolves' first home football game. 

Restaurants and shops downtown opened during special hours from 11 to 2 on Sunday. 

The event is sponsored by the Downtown Jonesboro Association and is part of Pack Pride Weekends. 

Many participating businesses said the event is a good way to keep up the Red Wolf pride after the game while also welcoming more business. 

"Most of our staff here, and at many of our other stores, attended Arkansas State or are attending, so it is a really great way to support them and then get people into the downtown area," said Brandon Stevens, Gearhead Outfitters buyer and sales associate. 

Downtown businesses saw many customers this weekend, especially lots of out of town people on Saturday leading up to the game.

"Yesterday what was really cool was we had a lot of Mizzou fans coming in and checking us out and seeing what was going on," Stevens said. 

Business workers said they hope the Sunday eating and shopping sales will increase now as well.

"Yeah since it just started you can't really tell the sales at the moment but we are hoping to build it up and have a good Sunday crowd," Jacob Robbins, Sully's bartender, said. 

The next Brunch and Browse will be held September 20 for the Red Wolves' second home game against the Missouri State Bears. 

Participating businesses of brunch and browse include Sully's, Abilities Unlimited, Great Expectations, Creegen's, Godsey's, Gearhead Outfitters, Omar's Uptown, and Partovi's Gyro and Falafel.
