Mission downtown businesses show appreciation

On Thursday, Nov. 19, from 5 to 8 p.m., participating businesses in the downtown core will offer special sales, discounts and more.

With the holiday season fast approaching, the Mission Downtown Business Association is gearing up for its annual Customer Appreciation event.

On Thursday, Nov. 19, from 5 to 8 p.m., participating businesses in the downtown core will offer special sales, discounts, prizes, treats and a whole lot more in order to start the holiday season off on the right foot.

“This is our kick-off to the Christmas Shopping season for anybody who wishes to support local businesses,” explained Jamie Hayes, executive director of the Mission Downtown Business Association.

“It’s our chance to put our best foot forward. Our businesses put on big sales, promotions, they have prizes, refreshments, entertainment, coupons and it’s a great time to come out and support your local businesses.”

Hayes said the event has a fun, casual atmosphere and allows shoppers to meet local merchants who they may not have met before, while still getting a great deal.

“Be sure to come down and enjoy dinner at one of our many restaurants before you start shopping,” added Hayes, who called the customer appreciation day a “well-loved event that Mission anticipates every year.”
