Whitby, ON –
The Downtown Whitby Business Improvement Area is pleased to announce that Shop Late, Shop Local will be held Friday, November 17th, 2017 between 6pm and 10pm. Shop Late, Shop Local provides visitors to the Downtown with a night out on the town in the historic heart of Whitby.
‘We’re hoping to kickoff the holiday shopping season for our charming downtown with Shop Late, Shop Local.” said BIA Events Committee Chair Jamie Letros. “There’s something special about mid-November. We’re starting to get into that holiday spirit but aren’t totally at rest yet. Shop Late, Shop Local is a nice night out to recharge, take in some beautiful historic buildings and get some shopping done before the rush starts.”
The Downtown Whitby BIA will be helping guide this year’s organization of the event. Formed earlier in 2017, the BIA is dedicated to bringing feet on the streets and dollars in the doors. “We will be monitoring to make sure this event has a positive impact on our merchants and helps raise awareness of all the great shopping and services available right here at home.” said BIA Board Chair Chris van der Vliet.
