It’s November 30th and I am sure most of you have begun your Christmas preparations. This will include a few trips to St. John’s to get all your holiday presents. We all plan some time to make that trip to “town” to start purchasing Christmas groceries and special “something’s” for our love ones. Each trip costs us at least 30-40 dollars in gas and of course there are a few meals included before a single gift is bought. Now don’t get me wrong, there is a need to take that trip as the selection is much larger in a city than in a small rural town. But, instead of multiple trips, why not visit all the wonderful local shops and boutiques in our community and region. Over the past few weeks I have been visiting businesses in Bay Roberts, to say hi and take a few pictures. I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of places there were to get that unique gift here in our own town. For those living in St. John’s and region, this is an invitation to visit and shop! While you are here make sure you visit the many Christmas locations in town, there are wonderful locations to take family Christmas pictures visit www.bayroberts.com for more details! Below is a listing of the “Mom and Pop” business that you should plan on visiting this Christmas season!
