Christmas merchandise for holiday giving has made its appearance in Norwood stores and displays offer a wide variety of gift selections. With the mailing of overseas Christmas gifts out of the way, Christmas givers are now ready to concentrate on their home giving.

May we suggest to Norwood folk that they visit the local shops and look over the Christmas gift possibilities on display here? Shopping locally is a time saver, a transportation saver and a temper saver. It’s definitely worth doing.

To help the Christmas shoppers, Norwood stores have set their special holiday hours. Stores will be open all days Wednesday during December, dispensing with the usual Wednesday half holiday. During the week before Christmas, stores will be open every evening until nine o’clock.

Don’t pass by the opportunities for gift buying in your own hometown.
