You Won’t Find This at the Mall!
I posted this photo of happy Montrose shoppers getting a free horse drawn trolley ride and one friend posted, “You won’t find this at the mall!” Little did she know she would be the inspiration for this week’s column. Yes, it’s easier than ever to shop online and be done with it. Yes, you can go to the mall and fight the traffic, parking and people to get that same item that can be found in 100 other stores across the country.
But where can you go to get the genuine small town Christmas shopping E-X-P-E-R-I-E-N-C-E? There is nothing like shopping & dining in the Montrose Shopping Park at Christmas. Picture yourself in the beautiful outdoors, the sound of Christmas carols being sung on the street corner, the smell of coffee from our cafés, the clattering of horse’s hooves as they prance by. It is truly a feast for all of the senses. And then the stores!!! Unique, one-of-a-kind shops where the owners have handpicked the merchandise and are happy to see you.
As merchants it thrills us when people come in and say, “I am shopping local this year. I’m glad you are here and I want you to stay.” Shop & Dine Montrose this weekend. We are looking forward to seeing you for the big Christmas finale… Signed,Your friends at www.shopmontrose.com
