    Top Reasons to Spend Saturday in Dwight

    1. Holiday spirit.  Holiday shopping used to be a fun, uplifting experience, didn’t it?  Leave the stress and crowds of the big box stores on Friday, and spend Saturday soaking up the holiday spirit in a Hallmark movie-like small town atmosphere.  No crowds to fight.  Plenty of parking. An inviting community ready to help you.
    2. Unique gifts.  Smaller chains like Shopko and local stores like Franklin Corner will give you access to items that your recipients are likely to have never seen.  There is no danger of receiving a duplicate gift here, and you’ll find something for even the most difficult-to-shop-for person on your list.
    3. It’s on us!  For every store you visit on Saturday, enter your receipt into our drawing.  One lucky winner will have their entire purchase (up to $100) reimbursed!
    4. Free hot chocolate.  Enjoy a free hot chocolate and treats at one of a few locations around town.
    5. Great food.  Start your day with breakfast at Pfaff’s Bakery or Old Route 66 Restaurant and enjoy lunch and/or dinner in any of our amazing restaurants.  Dwight is a hidden treasures of great places to eat.  Take advantage of the day to find out what we have to offer.
    6. Shop local.  Whether you’re from Dwight, Gardner, Odell, Braidwood, Streator, or elsewhere, spending your money in our area with local shops is great for the local economy.  Rather than the bulk of your money going to Arkansas, Minnesota, or one of the coasts, it gets put to work right here, creating employment and improving infrastructure, from which we all benefit.
