Come downtown Defiance to shop this holiday season. On Black Friday and Small Business Saturday, stop by the Visitors Center to pick up a downtown business passport and get two complimentary stamps from the Defiance Development and Visitors Bureau and the Defiance Chamber of Commerce. You will only need to shop at 10 other stores to be entered to win the downtown merchant gift card tree. You will also receive a complimentary Shop Small Canvas Tote Bag just for stopping in!

While you are here, shop our gift shop with a 50% off sale featuring t-shirts, books, Cd's, and various gift items. Also the 2017 Defiance ornaments are $10 while supplies last. Complete your collection with past Defiance ornaments for $2.00 (or try your luck with a mystery ornament grab bag for $1.00 featuring past ornaments and 2 bags will have the brand new 2017 ornament). 

On Friday we invite you to wear a ugly Christmas Sweater to get into the spirit of the season. 
On Saturday, show your spirit by wearing Ohio State or Michigan gear and check out the score as the game will be shown in the Visitors Center.
