CORNWALL, Ontario – If you’re looking for the latest holiday trends downtown Cornwall has you covered.
And it won’t cost you a cent to visit as the City of Cornwall is waiving parking fees at all municipal lots in the Downtown Business Improvement Area.
Shop the Blocks takes place Nov. 8 from 5 to 9 p.m. in downtown Cornwall. Participating businesses are staying open late and offering a chance to view their newest collections and current trends in time for the busy holiday shopping season.
Typically the city charges to park at metered spaces until 6 p.m. on weekdays, but Cornwall’s Chief Building Official Chris Rogers said that won’t be the case Nov. 8. Parking will be waived from 5 to 6 p.m.
The evening is sure to be a hit with shoppers downtown.
“You can take advantage of discounts, giveaways, draws and demonstrations,” said Centretown Coordinator Todd Lihou. ” You can seek out some of the best in food, art, gift-giving ideas, pampering and healthy lifestyle options, plus a whole lot more.”
