The Christmas season is just around the corner, and that means that shopping has probably been added on the to-do list. Alexandria’s downtown merchants are hosting special holiday shopping event, “Hometown Christmas” to get shoppers in the holiday spirit.
Join the merchants December 6 through the 8, and enjoy hot cider and holiday goodies while you shop. Not only is the shopping great, but historic downtown Alexandria is truly a festive experience. The holiday decorations and friendly personalities of the local owners make it a much different experience than the mall.
Those used to the holiday savings at the busy malls will not be missing out on special deals, either. Shoppers can take advantage of the specials and sales throughout the weekend, and people looking for unique, one-of-a-kind gifts are sure to find them downtown at the 37 different participating locations.
Come to Alexandria, December 6-8 for a weekend filled with shopping and holiday fun.
