The holidays are upon us and no one understands the importance of
shopping small than the village-oriented Town of New Canaan, with its
abundance of locally-owned shops and businesses.
Selectman Robert Mallozzi III makes the case for shopping locally this
holiday season and announces the new gift certificate that will be made
available by the New Canaan Chamber of Commerce which will be usable at
any of the Chamber-connected businesses around town.
the perfect time to pick yours up, with the 9th Annual Holiday Stroll
approaching, set to take place on Saturday and Sunday, Dec. 6 and 7. New
Canaan this year has a number of new shops and options to choose from,
including new names like New Canaan Music, New Canaan Olive Oil, GoldenBerry or Betty's Teas.
"New Canaan transforms into something out of a Dickens’ story book.
Friday night kicks off with the arrival of Santa Claus, a lighting of
the trees, carol singing, live entertainment while the stores stay open
late and offer refreshments and holiday cheer," reads the Chamber of Commerce website detailing the event.
while you're helping to keep New Canaan in business with its diverse
offerings, be sure to give back to the town directly and help keep the
holiday lights flickering. It will cost the New Canaan Chamber of
Commerce more than $21,000 to light up the town this year, and the
Chamber pays for those expenses out of pocket. Read the details on donating to the Village Lighting Fund here. Checks made out to the Village Lighting Fund can be mailed directly to the Chamber at 91 Elm Street, New Canaan 06840.
