Get Ready to "Shop Like Charlotte", A Fun-Filled Ladies Night Out. Get Tickets Before They're Gone!

Get ready for "Shop Like Charlotte", the fun-filled ladies night and fundraiser for Charlotte Eleanor Englehart Hospital, happening in downtown Petrolia

Friday, Sept. 29th, starting at 5 pm!

This annual, ticketed event is a local favourite to explore the unique shops, experience the creative culture of the community and support the local hospital. Get exclusive access to after hours shopping, discounts, door prizes, pop-up sales, and surprise special events!

The evening begins with a reception at the Petrolia Farmer’s Market, 396 Fletcher Street, where you receive a swag bag which contains small gifts and coupons from the local businesses.

It will include a very special map showcasing the participating businesses and what you can expect that night.

Then you are given a wristband, which will make you eligible for sales, draws, refreshments, and much more.

Until you get the map, you won’t know all of the events going on during the evening! The local businesses sometimes give little hints through social media posts, but outside of that, you can look forward to some surprises.

I had a visit with Lindsay Peterson, the manager of Gray’s Floral Market in Petrolia, one of approximately 30 local businesses hosting the Shop Like Charlotte event that evening. Gray’s is centrally located around the corner from the Shop Like Charlotte meeting place and are known for going a little over the top for this annual fundraising event.

At Gray's, it is also about honouring their loyal clients and being able to give back to them as a customer appreciation. “Ultimately, it is a shopping event to support the CEE, and the local businesses that are all so important to the communities that we live in" Peterson says.

Gray's will have a photo wall which turns their whole store into an interactive photo booth, adding to the fun of the girls' night out. They will also have champagne and a surprise live event which will include local artisans showcasing their work!

"It’s a great opportunity to discover what’s new for fall and Christmas - it’s a perfect time to get a sneak peek and go into a lot of stores you’ve never been to before,” says Peterson. She adds, “It’s a fun night! It’s so nice to see so many friendly familiar faces, and it’s exciting to see the looks on the faces of the ladies who have never been before! Sometimes people bring family or friends from out of town, and it’s always fun to see their reactions to all of the exciting things going on up and down our streets! The diversity of our shops in Petrolia is truly exceptional.”

“There is lots of parking! You can walk the downtown strip or you can catch a shuttle if your hands are full of shopping bags. The shuttle is sponsored by MacFarlane Chevrolet Buick GMC Ltd. There will be live entertainment in different spots throughout the downtown core made up of local talents. And best of all, the shopping is fabulous,” says event organizer Denise Thibeault. Peterson adds, “It’s a fast and furious night! 250 women are given 4 hours to shop till they drop! ’Then to finish the evening off, pop into one of our local establishments for drinks and apps".

So, gather your girlfriends together and head out to Petrolia for a fun-filled night of shopping, surprises, prizes, street entertainment, drinks, and laughs!

Tickets are $25 and are on sale now at all banks in Petrolia.
