Try something new this year! Instead of fighting the crowds in the big city shopping mall for your holiday shopping, why not sample the leisurely, quaint town of Sapulpa during its Christmas Open House on Saturday, November 4 between 10 a.m. and 5 p.m.
“Holiday shopping in Sapulpa is a great experience,” explains Janet Sherwood, Main Street director. “The festive atmosphere, the holiday lights, the gourmet food to sample, the personal service, the happy faces and the holiday spirit mean your Christmas begins when you start shopping.”
The Christmas Sapulpa Open House is a chance for storeowners to display their holiday wares to the public, and for the public to sample this unique shopping experience. Refreshments will be available as well as music, sales and discounts at some stores, foods to sample and more. There are many speciality stores, gift stores and restaurants to choose from.
On Thursday, November 16 you can watch the Lights On Ceremony, starting at 5 p.m. The ceremony includes the Community Band, the Children’s Choir and a visit from Santa! The lights will be dancing merrily on lampposts and storefronts down Main Street, Sapulpa, and the celebrations can really begin.
Sapulpa is located just 15 minutes from the heart of metropolitan Tulsa and it is easily accessible via Historic Route 66. The town features many excellent speciality stores like A Moment in Time, owned by Reba Nation, where you will find one of the best assortments of Christmas decorations in the area, and an impressive display of deliciously scented candles. Le Jardin, owned by Margie Cockran, sells unique Christmas gifts and jewelry.
“Customers really get great customer service in a small town like Sapulpa that you simply don’t find at the malls in the city,” says Reba Nation of A Moment in Time.
So, take a drive down Historic Route 66 and come see what makes the quaint little town of Sapulpa stand out as the friendly and fun family destination for your holiday shopping needs.
