Dear Editor:

I am writing on behalf of the Invermere Business Committee (IBC) to let you and the community know there is no official Super Sunday Downtown Shopping Event planned for this year. The downtown businesses have found that this shopping event has been getting slower with each passing year. It will be up to individual retailers as to whether or not they choose to do any specials on the first Sunday of December.

Instead, efforts are being made to expand shopping opportunities in downtown Invermere, such as the December 8th PJ Shopping Event featuring 18-plus shops open until 9 p.m. and four Late Night Shopping nights between Christmas and New Years (December 26th, 27th, 29th and 30th), featuring 15-plus shops open from 5 to 8 p.m.

Thank you for your support.


Alita Bentley
