D ear Chamber Members;
Holiday traditions are distinctive to every one of us. Winnetka and Northfield businesses are busy making plans to make your holidays merrier!
Red Invitaion Sunday Holiday Sale
Winnetka's and Northfield's Red Invitation, Sunday Sale is a 38 year tradition anticipated by over 26,000 North Shore residents who receive the invitation to Shop, Dine and Save Local.   This year, on Sunday December 4, our villages will be decorated for the holidays welcoming the hustle and bustle of shoppers to our unique, service oriented, beautifully appointed, customer friendly shops on the North Shore. Is your business participating?  Check to see if you are listed as a participant. We still have room if you act quickly... read Terry's letter in its entirety
