Downtown Opelika merchants will provide patrons with a first glimpse of their Christmas gifts and offerings during the annual “Holiday Open House” event Nov. 4 from noon – 5 p.m.
Organized by Opelika Main Street members, the annual event is a great way for shoppers to know what their options are downtown, according to Taylor Made Designs Owner Taylor Sumrall.
“The open house serves as a preview for all our customers to come out and kind of see the first reveal of the holidays in downtown Opelika. All of the stores are fully decorated and stocked with stocking stuffers and the gifts you need for everyone on your list. It kicks off the first round of the holiday season for those that do all (their shopping) before Thanksgiving and gets us all ready for the season.”
Merchants’ shops will also be full of Christmas cheer, as various stores will be serving beverages and snacks, holding door prize giveaways, offering free gift wrapping and more.
Following is a current list of participating vendors, which is subject to change until the day of the event:
– All Aboard by Southern Crossing

– Fringe Kid’s
– The Gallery on Railroad
– Gatherings by Judy and Paula
– Heritage Gifts and Gourmet
