Vendors sought for shopping event

B y Derek Liebig

The Whitehall Chamber of Commerce is seeking to showcase the local business community and is looking for vendors for a special holiday shopping experience that will be held next weekend at the Whitehall Athletic Club.

A Holiday Mini Mall Shopping Extravaganza will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday, Dec. 7, inside the Athletic Club.

“We’re look for more vendors,” Jane Gendron, a member of the chamber of one of the event’s organizers, said.

Gendron said the event is an opportunity for local businesses to showcase their products and services during the busy holiday season.

“There are lots of businesses that I’m not aware of and other people aren’t as well,” she said. “We’re looking to make that connection.”

A variety of vendors have already signed up and the organizers are hoping top recruit more than 80 different vendors by next week’s event.

Gendron said the event’s locale—the former Armory on Route 4—is ideal for an event of its type.

“The Whitehall Athletic Club has been a wonderful addition to the community. It’s the perfect showcase. We are very excited to work with (owner) Greg Gross and his staff. And we’re excited this event is on the Route 4 corridor,” Gendron said.

The cost to participate as a vendor is $25 and includes a table and chairs. Organizers are also asking vendors to make a donation to the Whitehall Food Pantry. Anyone who would like to participate as a vendor, is urged to call organizer Carol Winchell, owner of Carol’s Collectibles, at 499-0728.

Admission for patrons is free and a large variety of goods and services will be available for purchase.

“It’s a wonderful way to celebrate the beginning of the season and show people what we have here,” Gendron said.
