Murtoa’s Christmas Shopping Day – Sunday 12 DecemberDecember 5, 2014
Everything is falling into place for a busy, bargain-filled Christmas shopping day in Murtoa on Sunday, December 14.
Through the generosity of sponsors, the children will enjoy free rides on a merry-go-round and jumping castle as well as free face-painting, fairy floss and icy poles and a lucky shopper will also go home with a $250 Murtoa Shopping Voucher.
Murtoa Community Pharmacy is also offering lucky shopper prizes with Pharmacy customers going into a draw for one of two hampers featuring either skin care or cosmetics.
The shops will be open from 10a.m. to 3 p.m. and although the Pharmacy will only be open from11 a.m. to 1 p.m., it is greatly appreciated that Stuart and the staff have agreed to support the concept by opening and being part of this Sunday trading.
Santa and some elf helpers will be visiting during the day to add to the occasion. It is hoped that regardless of the weather forecast, Murtoa will come out in force to do some shopping and see what the shops around town have to offer.
The Historical Society will be manning the street stall with the usual offerings on sale as well as raffling a wheelbarrow full of goodies donated by the local traders. (See Ad)
The shopping day has become a ‘whole-of-town’ project with support from all the traders and many trades people. Support from the community is now all that is needed to make the day a success.
