Holiday Cheer With Holiday Shopping Around The City

One of the most enjoyable ways to get into the holiday spirit is to attend a special shopping event. There’s nothing more heartwarming than the reappearance of holiday garland, twinkling ornaments and the smell of cinnamon and pine welcoming you into a local shop. To heighten the merriment even further, plenty of locales offer champagne, Christmas cookies and even gifts with your purchase. Shopping is a pastime that should be experienced with all five senses. That’s why it feels SO special to – once again – see, smell, taste, hear and touch the magic of the holiday season. On that note, I’ve compiled a list of upcoming shopping events throughout the city that will have you humming Christmas carols well before Thanksgiving dinner. Now go eat, drink, shop and be merry!

*This list will continue to be updated as events are added*
