POWERShop returning to Lacombe

The term “one-stop-shopping” may be an overused cliché, but it really does apply to an annual retail event in Lacombe. Now in its sixth year, Lacombe Christmas POWERShop combines multiple vendors in a single location, with a broad range of products available for easy seasonal shopping.

The term “one-stop-shopping” may be an overused cliché, but it really does apply to an annual retail event in Lacombe.

Now in its sixth year, Lacombe Christmas POWERShop combines multiple vendors in a single location, with a broad range of products available for easy seasonal shopping.

“It’s a good mix,” said Kim Bérubé, executive director of the Lacombe Chamber of Commerce.

“There’s a little bit of home decor and seasonal decor and food and clothing and kids’ stuff — kind of a little bit of everything.”

Organized by the Chamber, Lacombe Christmas POWERShop will take place Nov. 9 from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at the Lacombe Memorial Centre Centennial Hall. Bérubé said she already has about 25 vendors, with space for 15 more.

“We’ve always been around 35 vendors.”

They represent a mix of artisans and home-based and store-front retailers, and come from Lacombe and other communities. Bérubé said Lacombe Christmas POWERShop provides them with great exposure to consumers that they otherwise might not have, especially with limited marketing budgets.

“It’s a way to have a larger entity provide them with an opportunity to get to know a different market.”

Additional information about Lacombe Christmas POWERShop, including booking information for vendors, can be obtained by emailing infoAlacombechamber.ca or calling 403-782-4300.
