Downtown Winter Wonderland to kick off Thursday

Downtown Minot is being transformed into a Winter Wonderland of holiday shopping tomorrow.

Six local downtown businesses have joined together to bring three days of activities and specials.

You can stop in all six businesses and look for Ugly Sweater Waldo for your chance to win a gift basket valued at three hundred dollars!

The event is something downtown business owners say they look forward to all week.

"Hopefully it'll bring more people into our store. Old customers and maybe a few new ones. That's always our goal is to get new customers, because your business can't grow unless you have more new customers," says Jackie Field, Oliver's Attic Owner.

Participating stores include Main Street Books, Mainstream Boutique, Gideon's Trumpet, Oliver's Attic, Gourmet Chef and Grow With Me.
