On Friday, December 8, check out our first annual Holiday Sip, Shop & Stroll in Downtown Lakeland. Retailers are staying open late–until 9pm–just for you to get all of your holiday shopping done and grab some great bargains in the process.

Make it a date night! Start your evening sipping drinks at one of Downtown’s fine restaurants, coffee shops, or bars. Stroll through the festive holiday atmosphere in Munn Park, as well as up and down the decorated streets. Shop for one of a kind gifts at our retail stores. Make holiday shopping fun again!

But wait! It gets even better. Keep your retail receipts from your Sip, Shop, and Stroll shopping adventure and turn them into Downtown Dollars you can spend another day.

Here’s How: Bring your original retail receipts dated the night of the Sip, Shop, and Stroll event on December 8 to the Lakeland Downtown Development Office located at 117 N. Kentucky Ave. (next to Explorations V Children’s Museum) between 10am and 5pm on Mondays, Wednesdays, or Fridays from December 11 through December 20.

For every $50 worth of eligible receipts turned in, you will receive $5 in Downtown Dollars to spend again with local businesses. ($50 increments are calculated before tax.)

Receipts must be original. Restaurant and bar receipts not included. No photocopies or text receipts accepted. Receipts will be stamped by LDDA and returned. Be sure to ask merchants for printed receipts while shopping. Receipts must include the date–December 8, 2017–printed on them. Downtown Dollars are not accepted at every Downtown business. You will be given a list of participating businesses along with your Downtown Dollars.

This event and shopping promotion is brought to you by the Downtown Lakeland Partnership and the Lakeland Downtown Development Authority.
