While you are in Montrose, it is a great time to start your holiday shopping. Many of the shops in town already have their stores stocked with great holiday gifts and ware for you purchase. Supporting the businesses in town is very important to the local economy and the success of our shopping district. I encourage you to look in Montrose first to fill your holiday shopping needs. There are many great stores in town that sell wonderful things for the entire family. There are jewelry stores, pet stores, music stores, women’s clothing stores, kids’ clothing stores, gift and home décor stores, a toy store, bookstores, shoe stores, knitting and quilting stores, sporting goods stores, a store for new mothers, a cigar store, a rug store and many hair and nail salons to help you get ready for your holiday parties.
