UPDATED: More Shopping/Dining Opportunities Announced for Dec 9 Holiday Stroll

The Greenwich Downtown Business District will celebrate the Christmas spirit with a special Holiday Stroll on Greenwich Avenue Thursday, December 9, from 5:00 – 8:00 pm. The shopping and dining event is being produced by Re-Imagine Greenwich, Greenwich Forward, Shopt by Jamie, Greenwich Magazine, and Moffly Media are the media sponsors.

“This holiday season, we can all do our part by shopping locally. The Greenwich Holiday Stroll on December 9 will allow residents and visitors to kick off the holiday shopping season on the Avenue,” said First Selectman Fred Camillo. “Our downtown business district has a unique blend of independent and national retailers. I hope you will head to the Avenue with your family and friends to shop and make a dinner reservation at one of our fabulous restaurants. Thank you to the Re-Imagine Greenwich Committee for continuing to promote the vibrancy of Downtown Greenwich and all that it has to offer.”

Many stores and restaurants are participating by offering extended hours, light bites and refreshments, discounts, in-store drawings, and giveaways. Part of the mission of the First Selectman’s Committee to Re-Imagine Greenwich, co-chaired by Selectwoman Lauren Rabin and Sara Savov, is to determine ways to improve the experience residents and visitors have with our town business centers and with the local economy. Greenwich Forward, the fundraising partner to Re-Imagine Greenwich, is a non-profit that expands public awareness, funds initiatives, events, and amenities, and promotes living, working, and playing, all in Greenwich.

“Thank you to all our retail and restaurants that continue to make our downtown business district a destination. The stroll is such a wonderful way to kick off the holiday, shop local, and enjoy the festive decorations,” Rabin said.

Following the launch of Free Music Fridays last summer,  Re-Imagine co-chair Sara Savov said the committee’s efforts will again bring the community together.

“This Holiday Stroll is just one more example of how our Town businesses and residents come together to create something beneficial to all,” Savov said in a release. “Shopping, dining, and enjoying all that Greenwich has to offer under the brilliantly lit trees, what a wonderful way to embrace the Holiday season.”
