A chance for some last minute shopping in Johnston

December 16, 2012 by  

Christmas is now just over a week away and many people are scrambling to buy the perfect present for their friends or family members. One way those in Johnston can finish off their shopping is at the holiday shopping event at ‘Wishes under Wrap’. The event, sponsored by the North Central Chamber of Commerce, will also raise funds for the Chamber’s Scholarship Fund, which provides five $500 scholarships yearly to local high-school students. 15% of all sales from the day will go to support the fund.

Wishes under Wrap sells such items as Christmas decorations, gourmet baskets, candles, Christmas tree angels, and a wide variety of items appropriate for gifting. Those who bring a friend along with them will receive a free gift. It will no doubt help some people finish off their gift shopping or find items to decorate their homes for the holidays.

This might also be a good networking opportunity for chamber members and other Johnston residents. There is no doubt that some of those planning to attend this shopping event will be placing a new business card printing order in advance. While this will be a shopping event, there might also be the chance to discuss business with those encountered during the day, or for entrepreneurs to discuss with the store what they might be able to provide to them in the future.

The holiday shopping event will take place at Wishes under Wrap this Tuesday, December 18, from 10:00 am – 7:00 pm. For more information, call the North Central Chamber of Commerce at 401-349-4674.
