The Chamber of Commerce organizes the Christmas Shopping Spree every year to promote shopping in Fort Macleod during the Christmas season.
The promotion is designed to encourage people to shop in Fort Macleod first for Christmas gifts before heading to the city.
In addition to quality merchandise at low prices, Fort Macleod businesses also offer a personal touch for people shopping for Christmas gifts.
In addition to great service, customers also don’t have to struggle to find parking and battle huge crowds and long line-ups like they do in the city.
Theresa Miller of The Macleod Gazette called to invite businesses to participate in the Christmas Shopping Spree, and the response was positive.
