The Christmas Shopping Days sub-committee of the Canowindra Business Chamber and Progress Association (CBCPA) have been working tirelessly for the last few weeks to facilitate and promote shopping at local businesses this Christmas. The Christmas Shopping Days are being held 25th – 28th November. The main shopping day will be Saturday, 28th, November with participating shops open until 7pm.
