(Clare Rayment/Kitimat Northern Sentinel)
Starting on Plaid Friday (a ‘focus local’ spin on Black Friday), the District of Kitimat and the Chamber of Commerce will be giving away around $10,000 in gift prizes to those shopping local this holiday season. Seen here, Laurel D’Andrea, left, from the Chamber and Mike Dewar, right, from the DoK spotted Alain Brais and Nicole Audette shopping in Caprice Trading Post, owned by Kathy Seager (second left) and were given a swag bag from the ‘Focus Local’ campaign.
