Wellsford retailers are offering people two extra incentives to shop local this year, with a street market and late night Christmas shopping on Wednesday, December 23.
Shops will be open until 7pm and have bargain tables out on Rodney Street. There will be carols and Christmas songs from the Local Vocals choir, plus Santa will be in town for fun and photos.
Wellsford Plus has also arranged for Santa to visit Wellsford so he can meet local children and have photos taken in the run-up to Christmas. He will be at Hammer Hardware at 29 Station Road from Thursday, December 17 to Sunday, December 20 and at Hobbs Gifts & Homewares in Rodney Street from Monday, December 21 to Thursday, December 24. Santa will be at both venues between 10am and noon daily.
