If you are needing a last minute gift, then look no further than the Jersey County Creating Entrepreneurial Opportunities’ (CEO) The Jolly Shop.
The Jolly Shop is a pop-up Christmas store created by the students of Jersey Community High School (JCHS) junior and senior class. The CEO is a non-profit organization that provides entrepreneurship education to upperclassmen’s early morning class at the high school. Please show your support for these young entrepreneurs. They have worked so hard to create this family and kid friendly shop. Each year, the students in the class create a class business. This class project is used as a teaching tool to help students understand what it is like to own and operate a business.
“This year’s business is The Jolly Shop,” Morgan Johnson, a member of the CEO class, said. “We are located at 116 Lawn Care on State Street, which is in the store and we will be open on Dec. 18 from 1-6 p.m.”
Johnson also mentioned that the CEOs will have an eight foot tall gingerbread man walking around.
“His name is Gingy and he will be available for photo opportunities,” Johnson said. “The Jolly Shop will be offering custom made products and services such as: Custom tumblers, handmade ornaments, christmas cookies, chocolate-drizzled popcorn, grandma Cathy’s sugar spiced pecans, oreo balls, candy shop, handmade dog treats, custom santa milk and cookie plates and free kids crafts.”
Johnson also said that if a customer brings in their own Christmas gifts, the CEOs will wrap their gifts for them. The cost is $3 per gift (bulk discounts are available).
“Please come out and support us. We can’t wait to see everyone,” she said.
