‘Elf on a Shelf’ to Visit Downtown Chehalis After Santa Parade on Saturday

By The Chronicle staff

The Centralia-Chehalis Chamber of Commerce’s living “Elf on a Shelf” will visit four stores in downtown Chehalis on Saturday following the annual Santa Parade, which starts at 11 a.m. 

The elf will spend half an hour at each store location beginning with Brunswig’s at 2 p.m. The elf will then be at Bartel’s Clothing and Shoes at 2:30 p.m., Totally Pawsome at 3 p.m. and Book N’ Brush at 3:30 p.m. 

The elf’s helpers will be on hand to give out raffle tickets to shoppers who purchase $10 or more as part of the chamber’s “Great Receipt Exchange” promotion. The chamber giveaway is two stockings stuffed with gifts from local stores, one from Chehalis and one from Centralia. The winning tickets will be drawn on Dec. 17 with winners announced on social media and called directly.
