Instead of scouring for Black Friday deals in a large shopping mall faraway, Montrose merchants want you to shop local - they've even called Santa, snow and carolers to bring a White Friday to you.
Bright Christmas lights, old songs of Christmas
The park will be full of powdered snow, Christmas carolers, and a tree lighting ceremony at 7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 25.
Montrose Patch strolled the shopping park, scouring over gift options for everyone.
Look for stores with white snowflakes, Linda McMenamin told Patch. These indicate merchants who are participating in White Friday.
"Merchants can participate in a variety of ways: "whiting out" sales tax, offering discounts, coupons, deals or hosting a hospitality table for visitors," McMenamin said.
Check back with Patch for a list of participating merchants, which will be known by the Montrose Shopping Park Association Wednesday.
Montrose Patch wants to hear from you. What's on your holiday wishlist?
Will you buy a scarf for mom? Toms shoes from for a tot? Or holiday yarn from for your grandmother?
