store display for Merchants Night

Merchant’s Night

You're invited to join our community at our beloved annual Merchants' Night, which takes place the day after Thanksgiving. Walk down Main Street with friends and family to experience our businesses and the delectables they have in store for you this year. Holiday sales, drawings, and goodies await you this Merchants' well as a visit from Santa Claus -- traditionally riding in on a fire truck with the Chester Fire Department. Merchants' Night is a 25+ year tradition.

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…for holiday shopping on Main Street in Chester!
