2011 Hometown Christmas Shopping Event

Remember the tradition of shopping in the downtown for Christmas? Stopping in the local store, where they call you by your first name, and remember the important events in your life? Spending time with your family strolling the downtown streets, looking at children s decorations in the windows, and free hot chocolate on the street corner?

Consider a night of Christmas shopping before the rush of the season begins in downtown Sparta this year. Join us on November 18th for a Christmas Shop Sparta Event as we celebrate the tradition of shopping in your hometown at your local businesses. The Shop Sparta Event will include sales, free gift wrapping, horse & trolley rides, Non-profit Fundraising, hot chocolate, strolling downtown, and much more of the experience of tradition downtown once had in our Christmas Shopping endeavors.

Friday, November 18th will be the kick off to the “Experience Sparta” Hometown Christmas Shopping Event.  Take a trip to downtown Sparta to experience free, convenient parking, helpful customer assistance, and know that you are spending your hard-earned money in your own community.  Purchase a gift from any Sparta business on November 18th at ChoiceOne Bank after 5 pm, and have your gifts wrapped for free!  At 5:30 pm, watch as downtown Sparta lights up with the official Downtown Christmas lighting at the Under the Arches parking lot (located next to Dollar General).

Sparta is a community of deep tradition. We invite you to create your own in Downtown Sparta this holiday season.
