Christmas market: Get a bargain buy on High St

By Lachlan Durling

IN THE spirit of everything Christmas, High St retailers are taking to the street tomorrow as part of their Christmas Market.

Shoppers can bag a bargain from 10am onwards, with retailers offering selected specials for the day, and Santa will be stopping in to spread the cheer from 11am-12pm.

Nook on High’s Janine Pain said the market was a chance for people to get their Christmas shopping done — all the while picking up some gifts at a discount.

‘‘We’re getting most High St stores involved in some way, shape or form with retailers offering their own specials,’’ she said.

‘‘It’s a chance for us to put out some Christmas cheer for the locals and for each store to show what they have to offer.’’

The instigator of the market, Janine said she pitched the idea to fellow shop owners and as they say, the rest is history.

‘‘It was just a chance for us to be proactive and show what Echuca’s independently owned specialty shops have to offer, while also supporting the community and keeping things local,’’ she said.

Organisers said for individual store specials, visit businesses’ Facebook pages, the market is on tomorrow from 10am on High St.
