Eat, Drink, Shop & Be Merry!

 

Christmas shopping should always be this much fun!

We love shopping in Downtown Fergus any time of year, but on November 30th, 2018, the shops really go out of their way to create a very merry experience for one and all. It’s Christmas shopping the way it was meant to be.

And that’s part of the small town charm of events like Late Night Sip’n Shop. We go from store to store in search of treasures. Half the fun is in the discovery. Sometimes we know the treasures we seek and other times, the joy is in finding the perfect gift for that super hard-to-buy-for-person,  or the perfect little something for that the extra special person on our list, (and let’s face it, we also like to “help” our family by finding new items for our own personal holiday wish list, because really, it’s just being helpful, right?). From hostess gifts to teachers presents, we need new ideas. This is where we find them.

Late Night Sip’n Shop is further enhanced by the delicious offerings of participating stores to warm you up and make the experience a flavourful one.  Enjoy hot chocolates, ciders, egg nog and other specialty beverages, with samples of treats and sweets too.  Consider it a holiday party in a neighbourhood of stores!

But it’s about more than shopping. Late Night Sip’n Shop is also about the traditions we love to see and hear at this time of year, like voices singing carols in unison, and children surrounding the chosen Christmas tree behind the Fergus Library, where everyone gathers waiting for the annual reveal of the spectacular lights, and all the decorations of shop windows. Then, of course, Santa Claus needs to make an appearance, because he really is the best guy to have at a party like this!

Shopping local is about more than convenience here. We love our downtown shopkeepers. They are friendly people who have created unique retail locations that offer genuine, welcoming service. They love what they do and that makes it easy to support them. You don’t have to be from town to get the same service we locals do. That’s the whole point. Every customer matters and you’ll know it when you shop here.

So join in the fun of a night of relaxed holiday shopping, joyful family-friendly events, and us singing horribly off-key, because Christmas carols are awesome. Experience all downtown Fergus has to offer. You’ll see why we love it here.
