Bradshaws Open House - Christmas 2020
Join us for an entirely new way to experience our Bradshaws Christmas Open House Event!
This year, the Bradshaws Christmas Open House that you have come to love will take on an entirely different approach in order to ensure that you can be welcomed into our store safely and responsibly due to Covid-19.
We will be closing our store to the public on Thursday November 5th and Friday November 6th so that YOU can reserve a shopping time slot to explore our store once it is beautifully decorated for the Holiday Season.
By reserving your spot in advance:
• You will be the first to see our newest Holiday Arrivals ahead of the public.
• You will receive a FREE $10 GIFT CARD for every $100 spent.
• You will be able to enter to win one of our many door prizes and gifts.
• You will have the opportunity to purchase our special holiday featured sale items from our FIRST EVER Bradshaws Holiday Magazine.
We will limit the amount of customers in the store at any one time to ensure health and safety protocols are being followed, and appointments will be 45 minutes long – plenty of time to browse and find the perfect gifts for everyone on your list.
Thank you for embracing this new shopping experience and for supporting your independent retailers and restaurants in downtown Stratford this holiday season. Your support of local businesses in our community is so very much appreciated.
Entry tickets are $5.00 each and will be donated to Emily Murphy Centre of Stratford, which serves women, with or without children, in Perth County and surrounding area, who have experienced violence. Their second stage housing provides a safe alternative to living with violence and allows women to work co-operatively toward independence and freedom.
