Friday Night Shopping returns to Fairmont

Shopping extravaganza returns to the Valley

Holiday shopping has never been so good with Friday Night Shopping returning to Fairmont Hot Springs. Friday Night Shopping is going into its fifth year and this fun-filled business-oriented event is guaranteed to get customers out and about on a cold winter’s eve. Guests from all over will have the opportunity to bundle up and check off some of those specialty items on the holiday list while enjoying the festive ambience created by this one of a kind shopping extravaganza.

There are a few important steps to becoming a good Friday Night shopper. First, grabbing a shopping passport at the Lions Den behind the mall is essential to successfully navigating a host of participating businesses. At least 10 Fairmont merchants are on the list this year and the passport will ensure that each shopper will have a chance to win a highly coveted gift basket from participating vendors. Shoppers must present their passports to all merchants and have it stamped as they peruse the unique offers exclusive to this one evening only.

“We all have specials and crazy promotions and we all contribute to the prizes. Last year there were nine gift bags, as well as donations and gift certificates from participating businesses,” said organizer and owner of La Galleria II, Carolyn Barzilay.

As part of the promotion, 10 $25 gift cards will be given to a lucky winner, for a value of $250 that can be spent at participating locations including the Fairmont Hot Springs Resort for up to a year.

“It’s a great social event and well worth it for getting deals — it’s a family-event and guests can enjoy an evening of shopping and then stop at the pub,” said Ms. Barzilay.

This spectacular Fairmont shopping experience happens only one night a year on Friday, December 9th from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. in Fairmont at participating locations.
