Metter’s business community is now turning its attention to the 2020 Holiday Shopping Season, and Metter-Candler Chamber of Commerce has announced a full slate of activities for the month of November.
Included in the Chamber’s plans are Pop-Up Shops at 213 North East Broad St. (the old Vault 206 location) on Nov. 5, 7 and 28.
“Pop-up shops are only there for a short period of time,” explained Victoria Gaitten, executive director of Metter-Candler Chamber of Commerce. “These shops bring things into town that you cannot already buy here. They are designed to bring more shoppers into the downtown area.”
At each of these pop-up shops, a food truck will also be set up, with a different pop-up shop and a different food truck planned for each of the three dates.
Details of which pop-up shop and which food truck will be announced closer to event dates.
The Nov. 5 pop-up shop and food truck will coincide with Metter’s Homecoming Parade and IHS Pharmacy & Gifts Annual Holiday Open House, which are also scheduled for Nov. 5.
On Nov. 7, other events will include the Coffee, Country & Cars event at Burlap & Lace and Christmas Open House at Canoochee Creek.
Nov. 28’s pop-up shop will be held on the same day as the Shop Small Saturday event in downtown Metter.
Shop ... and win!
Throughout the month of November, the Chamber is sponsoring a shop local campaign.
If you shop with a local chamber member during November, don’t forget to drop off your receipt with your name and number into the drawing bag.
At the end of November, all receipts will be put into one large drawing for two $100 Candler Cash prizes and one $50 prize.
“The more you shop, the more chances you have to win,” Gaitten said.
And there’s more to come!
The fun won’t end in November, Gaitten said, as the Chamber is planning a revival of the old Pajamarama on Dec. 3.
“We are recreating an old tradition for a new generation,” Gaitten said. Look for details in the weeks to come.
