One-stop Holiday Shopping in Silver Bay

On Thursday, Dec. 5, the AmericInn of Silver Bay is hosting the fifth annual Mall of the AmericInn.

The hotel is inviting local businesses to set up shop for one day and give the community the opportunity to purchase merchandise without having to drive to Duluth or the Twin Cities. Each participating vendor will occupy a hotel room and customers will wander from "shop to shop." The event will take place from 3- 8 p.m.

The charge for businesses to set up shop in hotel rooms for the day, along with spending the night and taking advantage of the motel's pool, slide, whirlpool and breakfast buffet is $30.00. There is no charge for community members to come and shop.

This year, in addition to complimentary beverages and holiday cookies in the lobby for shoppers, there will also be food vendors set-up in the breakfast area.

The Mall of the AmericInn event provides convenient shopping and encourages people to shop locally and support our community businesses and crafters.

Round-trip transportation for shoppers departing from the Senior Center in Grand Marais and from SuperOne in Two Harbors at 3 p.m, is $10 round trip. Riders may in advance or at the hotel. Cash, checks and credit cards accepted. The return-trip departs at 7 p.m. For more information, call 218- 226-4300.
