Awfully nice of Sault Ste. Marie’s downtown merchants to put together a festival to celebrate the fact that my book, Sex is a Four-Letter Word and Other Misconceptions, is now available at Stone’s Office Supply on Queen Street. Understand they’re even going to hold a Christmas Tree Lighting in my honour. That red glow is me blushing, not Rudolph’s nose glowing.
While you’re there you might check out the hot chocolate competition, the late-night shopping and some of the great restaurants and bars.
I’m one of those who believes there are a lot of good reasons to go downtown (besides to buy my book). And I think it’s great that young people feature prominently in the revival of the Sault’s downtown.
Big-box stores have their place, but I get better service and make more friends when I shop downtown.
