Shop­ping lo­cally has never been so easy

Wicklow People - - NEWS -

CHRIST­MAS shop­pers will find ex­actly what they are look­ing for all along the streets of Wick­low, re­gard­less of bud­get or tastes.

There has never been a bet­ter time to shop lo­cal and where bet­ter than in your lo­cal town to tick off a few gifts off your shop­ping list.

Wick­low has an ar­ray of bou­tiques, spe­cial­ist stores, fam­ily owned busi­nesses and var­i­ous shops of­fer­ing ev­ery­thing you could pos­si­bly re­quire.

Thou­sands turned out for the turn­ing on of the Christ­mas lights on Satur­day, en­hanc­ing the streetscape with their bright and daz­zling dis­play.

Through­out Wick­low there are a range of bou­tiques, spe­cial­ist stores, fam­ily owned busi­nesses and var­i­ous shops of­fer­ing ev­ery­thing you could pos­si­bly re­quire.

There will be bar­gains a plenty to be sniffed out in Wick­low town so save your­self from the hus­tle and bus­tle of shop­ping in Dublin or else­where.

Af­ter a busy day of shop­ping and en­sur­ing all the Christ­mas presents have been bought, why not drop into one of Wick­low town’s many cafes, bars or restau­rants in a re­lax­ing at­mos­phere for a hearty meal, a cuppa and maybe even a mulled wine or two.

An added at­trac­tion this year is the Christ­mas Mar­ket tak­ing place in the Abbey Grounds on the week­ends of De­cem­ber 8 and 9, De­cem­ber 15 and 16 and De­cem­ber 22 be­tween 12 noon and 6 p.m.

There will be a se­lec­tion of lo­cal ar­ti­san foods, dec­o­ra­tions, gifts, mu­sic, en­ter­tain­ment and work­shops, as well as the chance to visit Santa in his mag­i­cal Grotto. There will also be an Al­paca ex­pe­ri­ence where adults and chil­dren will get a chance to min­gle with all things woolly and won­der­ful.
