Boost local business while holiday shopping


The Town of Fairfield and Fairfield’s Chamber of Commerce have joined forces once again, creating a new and wonderful opportunity for community members to enjoy Holiday shopping while in turn helping to boost local businesses revenue.

First Selectman Mike Tetreau recently announced that the Town of Fairfield and the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce will co-sponsor the 1st Annual Fairfield Holiday ‘Shop N Stroll’ on Thursday December 12, 2013. “This is a great opportunity to support local businesses and to get your Holiday shopping done while enjoying a fun night out with family or friends,” said Tetreau.

Participating shops in town will stay open late and will offer an assortment of hor d’oeurves and seasonal refreshments. Carolers and Musicians from local schools and other organizations will be strolling around town, filling the air with holiday jingles, while local restaurants will be offering dinner and drink specials. 

“The Chamber of Commerce is happy to be partnering with the Town on this festive event as it will give our local businesses another opportunity to open their doors to the community, meet new customers from surrounding towns and together, help celebrate the holiday season with a wonderful shopping experience!” said Beverly Balaz, Chamber of Commerce Executive Director.
