Down­town Galt with its his­tor­i­cally sig­nif­i­cant ar­chi­tec­ture and prime set­ting along the banks of the Grand River evokes a mag­i­cal by­gone era, boast­ing ex­cep­tional cus­tomer ser­vice, a wide ar­ray of unique shops and ser­vices, and a friendly small town at­mos­phere.

Any­time is a good time to shop Galt on the Grand, but on Satur­day, De­cem­ber 9th the hol­i­day cheer kicks into high gear with the Cel­e­brate the Magic of Christ­mas event. Dec­o­rated stores with eclec­tic col­lec­tions of di­vine choco­lates, un­usual an­tiques, gift bas­kets, home dé­cor items, vinyl records, hand­made gifts, and fash­ion for­ward jew­ellery are just some of what you’ll find to thrill even the most hard-to-buy-for folks. Shop­keep­ers will host hol­i­day open houses and of­fer pro­mo­tions and sales, while car­ollers, hot choco­late, and other jolly treats add a festive am­biance. “Santa walks our blocks and pops in to shops to say hello and the horse drawn trol­ley loops around our down­town giv­ing vis­i­tors a tour,” says Pamela Man­gos, owner of The Art of Home.

You could eas­ily spend the en­tire day, start­ing with the Christ­mas Mar­ket in full swing at City Hall. Brunch or lunch at one of the many restau­rants and cafes, then con­tinue shop­ping, pam­per your­self with a spa treat­ment, or visit an art gallery, then dine on every­thing from pizza and pasta to In­dian, veg­e­tar­ian, or au­then­tic Bri­tish pub fare.

“Every­thing on your shop­ping list is right here,” says An­drea Steb­bings, who has been the Ex­ec­u­tive Di­rec­tor of the Galt on the Grand BIA for 12 years and says the va­ri­ety and qual­ity of mer­chan­dise and ser­vices gets bet­ter ev­ery year. “You can go door-to-door, en­joy­ing the friendly at­mos­phere and per­son­al­ized touch of­fered in ev­ery store you walk into. The as­sort­ment of spe­cialty shops and ser­vices has every­thing you could want.”
