West Bend Winterland, the Claremore Chamber of Commerce, Claremore Merchants Group, and Claremore Main Street have partnered together to make a great Claremore shopping experience!
New this year is Claremore’s Holiday Trolley, a complimentary service provided to shoppers looking for a convenient way to get around town!
The Holiday Trolley will leave from the grounds of the Claremore Expo Center and make continuous loops to several trolley stops. Shoppers can park at the Expo Center, ride the trolley to Ne-Mar Shopping Center or historic downtown Claremore every Saturday in December, except December 29. Trolley rides will start at noon and end at 8pm.
Trolley stops are in front of J & J Pharmacy in Ne-Mar, Claremore Progress parking lot in the 300 block of Will Rogers, and in between Sailor Antiques and Main Street Tavern on Missouri Avenue. All trolley stops will have signage to make it easier to spot for pick-ups and drop-offs. “Shoppers can ride as often as they like, or make several trips back to their vehicle at the Expo center in case they need to drop off bags,” said Tanya Andrews director of the Claremore Expo Center. “This is a great way to promote Shop Claremore, Shop Local and encourage residents and visitors to spend money in town. It’s a great service provided by our partners.”
Many of the merchants in historic downtown will remain open until 7pm or later, and folks can always grab a great meal or libations while they are out and about. “The merchants are excited to participate in West Bend Winterland and are glad to partner in the Holiday Trolley which will provide shoppers a convenience we have not had in Claremore before,” said Sheila Giannelli, president of the Merchants Group.
