ALEXANDRIA, La. - There are several local merchants celebrating Christmas in July on July 14. And, the Central Louisiana Chamber of Commerce are asking residents to shop and buy local to get some Christmas shopping done early.
According to the chamber, money spent at one business translates to payroll, which is then spent for goods and services at other businesses. Economists estimate that a single dollar turns over 4-6 times for local businesses.
Here's a list of the following local businesses participating in the Christmas in July event:
All About Parties, Atwood's Bakery, Bake Your Day, Bon Swirl, Cajun Outdoor Cooking, Collegiate Corner, Economy Boots, Expectations, Funky Fleur De Lis, Her Closet, Hoity Toity, John Ward Interiors & Gifts, Kitchen Warehouse, Life's Little Treasures, Little Cakes, Magnolia Pups, Purple Cow, Shabby Chic, Somethin Snazzy, Southern Chic and Terra Home.
