Local Businesses hold annual Holiday Open House

Submitted by the Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce

The Fort Scott Area Chamber of Commerce announces that the annual Holiday Open House will be held this Thursday evening, November 10, from 5 to 8 p.m.


Retailers in the downtown historic district and other locations throughout town will be decked for the holidays and will offer drawings, festive treats and beverages for a fun evening of shopping for gifts and holiday décor.

“Holiday Open House is an evening both merchants and shoppers look forward to each year,” chamber executive director Lindsay Madison says. “Our local retailers depend highly on community support and purchases made do not have to be high dollar.”

More than 20 merchants are registered for the Holiday Open House and attendees can hop and shop as the trolley will be making a route from store to store for a free-will donation, thanks to sponsor Western Senior Living.

Participating retailers include: Bartelsmeyer Jewelry, Bids & Dibs, Books & Grannies, Captured Images, CJ’s Closet, Country Cupboard, Courtland Aveda Day Spa, Crooner’s Lounge, Electronics Store by Central Communications, Flowers by Leanna, Heidrick’s True Value & Gift Corner, Here We Go Again Upholstery & More, Iron Star Antiques & Such, J & W Sports shop, Lowell Milken Center for Unsung Heroes, Main Street Gallery & Gifts, Papa Don’s Vendors, Ruddick’s Furniture, Sekan’s Occasion Shop, Shirt Shack, Sunshine Boutique, The Bunker, Treasure Hunt Flea Market and Velocity Tactics. Western Senior Living will be set up in front of Iron Star with information on the brand new downtown apartments.

“The retailers appreciate customer loyalty throughout the year, but this night is a special night that they can also give back to the customers by providing a fun evening of shopping,” Madison says. “We are really excited to add the trolley making a loop between shopping locations and appreciate the sponsorship of Western Senior Living apartments to make that possible.”
