Santa Claus is coming to Princeton

The Princeton and District Chamber of Commerce extends an invitation to all to join us for the Princeton Christmas Light Up

Santa will be in Princeton this Saturday from 4 until 7 p.m.

We encourage all business owners to shop local and check out the Chamber Christmas Store for Home Based Businesses and Crafters.

On November 22, 2012 the Princeton & District Chamber of Commerce opened the Christmas Store at 219 Vermilion Ave. (the old Similkameen Sunshine building beside Fields.). This is to give home based businesses and crafters the opportunity to have a storefront location to display and sell their wares. This initiative was developed to give residents a wider shopping experience for the Christmas season in hopes they will shop local!

Princeton is host to many and various types of businesses. It is the objective of the Chamber to promote and encourage local business as well to encourage residents to do their shopping locally.  More money is kept in the community when you shop local rather than shopping in a big-box store. Businesses who sell locally, often purchase local as well.  Businesses that are unique help to create the character and prosperity that is enjoyed by all in the community.

Local businesses provide employment for residents who then in turn spend within their community which helps to create economic stability. Local businesses are invested in their communities, they are generally run by people who live locally, are less likely to leave and care about the community’s welfare and future.  Local business owners and managers also donate and support local charities.

Take a stroll through your community. Have a look at what the Christmas Store and what your local businesses have to offer, and remember when you support your local business you are supporting the community in which you live.

The Princeton and District Chamber of Commerce extends an invitation to all to join us for the Princeton Christmas Light Up and Santa’s Visit celebration on Saturday, Dec. 1.

Come and enjoy an afternoon shopping experience in between participating in the Light Up festivities. There will be an opportunity to warm up at the fire pits located at Veterans Square, the Princeton Plaza Mall and outside of the Source on Bridge Street. Enjoy hot chocolate, popcorn, goodies, a roasted marshmallow or two and the entertainment taking place.

On Dec. 1 as well, pick up your Christmas Shopping Passport and get your stamps at participating stores throughout the community. (Double stamps on Dec. 1 only)

We encourage you to shop local this Christmas Season and throughout the year!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all of you from The Princeton and District Chamber of Commerce.
