    The holidays are full of celebrations and opportunities to show our appreciation to the ones we love. It may be through a simple note, a homemade baked good, or a perfectly selected gift. This year, as you hunt for the perfect present, the ultimate party dress, and the thoughtful hostess gift, we ask you to make every choice deliberate and every dollar count.


    How can you do that? Make your holiday shopping list and hit the streets of Lancaster City. We guarantee that not only will you find the most unique gifts, shopping for your friends and family will go from being an annual routine to an unforgettable experience.


    Why shop local? It’s simple. You’ll find unique, quality gifts—many locally made—hand-selected by trusted business owners. Additionally, money spent in Lancaster stays in Lancaster which doesn’t only help our retailers, it makes our whole community stronger.
