Join the Christmas in July promotion.It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas…
It’s that time of the year again where the cold weather sets in and the chill in the air catches our breath and sees us ‘rugging’ up and staying indoors.
This is why Jan Parlett makes the effort to decorate the Exchange Hotel annually for a Christmas in July Experience to entice people to step outside and venture down town throughout the wintry month of July.
Jan has established a large following of Christmas enthusiast who travel many miles to see her Christmas displays and different decorations.
Jan is very aware of the significance of staging events so that customers will keep coming back to enjoy the seasonal celebrations.
We need only look at the growing momentum of the Henry Lawson Festival over the years to see the effect and impact an annual event can have on a town.
Jan, having worked in the Blue Mountains with their staging of Yule fest Christmas events watched the numbers of visitors flocking to brave the cold to partake in Yule fest celebrations and is now a strong believer that we can put Grenfell on the map as the centre in the west for everyone seeking a Christmas in July Experience.
This year Jan is staging ‘A White Christmas’ and will be closing her shop on Thursday 28th June so the finishing touches can be put in place for the Friday 29th June Christmas in July launch opening.
Jan is urging other businesses to come on board with the Winter Christmas Yule fest spirit and to decorate with a tree, homemade decorations that depict or symbolize their business, make quirky statements or playful attractive visuals displays.
Jan has many out of town customers who do walk up our main street and it would be a lot of fun if we could get visitors talking our town up as a must see Christmas town because they enjoyed venturing into all the shops to see what each shop has in store under or around their Christmas tree.
Jan also asks that anyone who is staging a Christmas in July activity, function etc leave information at the Exchange Hotel so Jan can promote your event to visitors who visit through the weekends throughout July.
To add a little incentive to the fun of decorating Jan is offering a prize for the most talked about Christmas decorating effort in a business outside of the Exchange Hotel.
