Local Kids to Stage Demonstration for Mother’s Day to bring Daddies to Downtown Annapolis

Zachary’s Jewelers is holding a mock protest with local children holding small picket signs like “1,2,3,4 Shop Main Street, that’s what it’s for!” and “Mommies love Diamonds” while marching up and down Main Street. The “protest” is being held to remind local residents that shopping locally for mother’s day is good for the local community. Zachary’s Jewelers will also have a family fair that day from 1pm to 3pm which will feature a magic show, Chesapeake Dance Company performance, songs by USNA Glee Club’s Anchormen, and a visit by Snow White! In store, Zachary’s Jewelers will be featuring designers Charles Krypell, Lisa Niks, and introducing their newest design “I love you for always” mother’s ring.

Stephen Samaras, owner of Zachary’s, said “This is a fun way to remind our local residents how important it is to shop locally in the independent stores downtown.”. He also added “The research firm Civic Economics has conducted several economic impact studies for cities across the country (New Orleans, Austin, San Francisco and Chicago, for example) showing a powerful local multiplier effect that results from recycling of capital spent at independent businesses.” Stacy Mitchell, who conducted the research for The Institute for Local Self Reliance, believes this multiplier is a key to our economic recovery. "Spending and investing more with local independents is powerful economic stimulus for communities," she notes.

The event is free of charge at the downtown Annapolis location, we request that if you are attending RSVP Nicki Bouchard at
