Special guests Elsa and Anna will be in the centre for shoppers to meet before they switch on the lights and fill the square with snow at 5.00pm.
Late night Christmas Shopping
When buying gifts for Christmas presents make sure you keep all receipts for future problems that may arise with the item. I have an old biscuit tin (I ate them all) that I keep all receipts and delivery notes in. Most shops will not give a refund without a receipt. Ask for a gift receipt to include with the wrapping so the person receiving can exchange if needed.
