The festive season is officially here, and shops in Downtown Simcoe are reminding the community of the importance of shopping local.
Several merchants have been going out of their way to attract customers to the downtown core by participating in Black Friday style deal events and more.
From the BIA’s perspective, they are trying to lure all Christmas shoppers downtown by decorating the streets to coincide with the 60th anniversary of the Christmas Panorama.
General Manager Jim McGimpsey is hopeful that those in Simcoe and beyond will continue to shop local instead of hitting up the big malls out of town.
The Simcoe BIA has a facebook page posting about lots of deals in the Downtown.
From there, you can find links to some of your favorite shops as well.
