By Sean Keeley · November 29th, 2010 · 2 Comments

Fremont businesses are pulling out all the stops to make sure you have as much time as possible for gift-buying this holiday season. Every Thursday in December leading up to Christmas (2nd, 9th, 16th, 23rd), tons of participating Fremont businesses will be open until 8pm. That timing also includes the entire week leading up to Christmas (Dec. 20-23).

Almost all of your favorite Fremont shops are participating, including Frame Up Studio, Fremont Jewelry Design, Habitude Salon, Ophelia’s Books, The Sweet Spot and many more. Refer to Fremont.com for a full list of participating stores or check out the posters and postcards located in all participating stores in town.

If this were an informercial, this is the part where I say “But That’s Not All…”

Wednesday, December 8th is the date of the Fremont Chamber Holiday Party & Awards at Fremont Studios. Between 5-7pm, the Chamber of Commerce will be celebrating the Fremonsters who make this community great as well as provided a place to meet, mingle, mix and do other things that start with the letter M and involved hanging out with people. The event is $20 if pre-paid, $25 at the door and you can RSVP here.

Thursday, December 9th will also be “Shop For A Cause” day. That evening, a percentage of sales from many area shops will be donated to B.F. Day School’s After School Tutoring Program to benefit the oldest elementary school in all of Seattle. The list of participating stores will be on Fremont.com shortly.

Every store involved with the December program will have their own special deals, musical guests, events and food offerings, but here’s a couple that are worth noting.

December 11th – Show Pony will be hosting a custom appreciation event with special deals and goodies.

December 11th – Fellas, listen up. Bellefleur Lingerie will be hosting a live lingerie fashion show this evening. It’s a chance for lingerie-buyers to see what all that frilly business actually looks like when it’s worn rather than just on a rack. I promise you, women of Fremont, this is a scientific and practical endeavor. Nothing more…

Like I said, there’s a lot more going on. Keep an eye on Fremont.com, look for the posters and post cards like the ones pictured here in your favorite Fremont stores and keep checking back here for updates.
