Be our guest
We`d love it if you could drop by Sunday November 24th for our annual Christmas Party. Ring in the Yuletide season with a big hunk of chocolate Yule log cake, cozy up with a hot chocolate and tuck into a mountain of buttery shortbreads. For the little one`s pictures of Santa, face painting, cookie decorating and live music with guitarist Peter Wainwright. And it`s all free of course! So please join us on Sunday November 24th from 8 till 5:30 and help us celebrate this truly magical time of the year.
The fun kicks off on Sunday, November 17th at 1 pm when St. Nick makes his triumphant return to town for the Orillia Santa Claus Parade. And of course, we`ll have the hot chocolate and Texas Donuts ready for when you`re looking up to warm up! On Black Friday, November 22nd we`ll be open storewide at 7 am with spectacular sales in our Scent and Seasons Shops. And that evening you can catch the excited smiles on the children’s faces as Downtown Orillia’s Candlelight Parade heads up Mississauga Street at 7 pm.
