Downtown Brainerd businesses host special events


This season, downtown Brainerd businesses joined forces to entice shoppers with special events.

Nancy Williams, owner of Fancy Pants Chocolates, said activities include a hidden elf with clues on its whereabouts that began Dec. 2 with a basket of items for the winner. Williams said 24 stores are participating in a coupon book Fancy Pants is sponsoring and all those stores can donate something for the basket.

I've worked at the Brainerd Dispatch with various duties since Dec. 7, 1983. Starting off as an Ad Designer and currently Director of Audience Development. The Dispatch has been an interesting and challenging place to work. I'm fortunate to have made many friends, both co-workers and customers.
