MRV Chamber Country Christmas promotion is this weekend



 Country Christmas, The Valley's annual holiday promotion of local businesses and merchants, takes place this weekend and features 36 businesses. Country Christmas Open House is set for this Saturday, December 6.

A total of 36 merchants are participating with offers like free refreshments, prize drawings and store wide or special item discounts. Punch cards may be obtained from any participating merchant in Waitsfield or Warren or in the insert in this week's edition of The Valley Reporter.


Shoppers are encouraged to visit five different merchants, getting a card punched at each. Once the card is complete, shoppers can mark their name and phone number on the card and leave it with the fifth merchant.
