NOVEMBER 27-DECEMBER 8: CHEWELAH CITY SIDEWALKS “EXPERIENCE 12 DAYS OF CHRISTMAS FOR SCREAMIN’ GOOD DEALS”
Chewelah Chamber of Commerce’s City Sidewalks Committee members have developed a plan for this year’s City Sidewalks event, seriously taking into account the continued need to socially distance. The City Sidewalks celebration will begin this year on Friday, November 27 and end Tuesday, December 8. The plan for the City Sidewalks event this year is to place a sandwich board with the tag line written on it, at a designated participating business for that day. The plan is to feature at least one retail business and one restaurant business each of the twelve days. The sandwich boards will get moved to a different location the next day and so on and so on, through December 8. The Chamber of Commerce post the location and the Screamin’ Great Deal on the Chamber website and Facebook page. Individual businesses can post their deal on their own Facebook page and link it to the Chamber page. There will be a container at each participating business for customers to drop their receipts into that day. Those receipts will get collected and go into a bigger container of receipts, from which we will draw three (3) prize winners on December 9.
