Experience Holiday Shopping the way it was meant to be!

Are you tired of waiting in long lines and fighting for parking spaces at the mall? The Wayne County Convention and Visitors Bureau invites you to discover the quaint downtowns and villages of Wayne County, Ohio. A place where you can shop in a relaxed stress-free atmosphere and experience Christmas Shopping the way it was meant to be. 


Shop Downtown Wooster, where parking spaces are as abundant as the many shops who call this historic main street community home.  Enjoy the “unwrapping” of the Christmas windows on November 22nd as the Downtown Merchants celebrate Window Wonderland and the arrival of Santa.


Just south of Wooster is the Pine Tree Barn, a historic landmark barn built in 1868 on a 200-acre Christmas tree farm. You’ll find beautiful gifts, home furnishings, a year-round Christmas  shop and gourmet luncheon restaurant. Take a horse-drawn wagon into the field to cut your own tree!


Visit our small towns and villages for that special holiday experience. Located near the historic Lincoln Highway, you’ll find The J.M. Smucker Company Store and Café in Orrville, where Smucker’s jams and jellies have been proudly made for over 100-years. The P. Graham Dunn Retail Gallery in Dalton invites you to their showroom for inspirational wood décor that can be personalized. And be sure not to miss Lehman’s Hardware in Kidron who offer creative solutions for a simpler life.


The Village of Smithville boasts many fine shops in The Barn Restaurant Complex including the Oak Cupboard General Store, the new Rustewelle and Barker, antique repurposing shop and Toyrifix Specialty Toy Store where it is rumored that the shelves are stocked by Santa’s elves.


The Village of Shreve invites you to stroll its main street and visit Shreve Hardware & Supply.  It’s the perfect old fashioned place to shop for that “hard to buy for” man on your list. Next door   you’ll find the Des Dutch Essenhaus Restaurant, Quilt Shop, & Bakery stocked with wonderful cookies and cinnamon rolls.
