This Is How We Holiday SHOP In Montrose

The MONTROSE SHOPPING PARK is such a happy and peaceful place to SHOP! There are so many one of a kind boutiques and cafes. We call it 

The idea is you discover new stores, make a few purchases, enjoy the beautiful holiday setting, and work up an appetite. Did you know TENMIMI has a LUNCH SPECIAL during the week? It's an amazing well priced meal with all kinds of extras. Chinese food is so appealing this time of year.

Just look at these windows beckoning you inside with holiday cheer! 

It's comforting among all the newness to see stores like FAYE'S  specializing in cozy nightgowns. Did you know actress Helen Mirren shopped here when she filmed the movie HITCHCOCK inside? Montrose has history & charm!

One of our most popular restaurants is THE BLACK COW CAFE, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Have you tried their COCONUT CAKE and MEXICALI COFFEE? Just ask the locals!

The doors are OPEN! Come inside!

THE T ROOM is pouring holiday cheer! Christmas tea is a MUST to add to your Montrose shopping experience!

Is this a Christmas card? You would think so! Our horse drawn trolley rides are FREE! Our gift to you for shopping Montrose on the weekends during OLD TOWN CHRISTMAS. 

This is how Montrose makes you feel! Like dressing up in red and sporting matching Santa hats!

MERRY CHRISTMAS! Happy Holidays!
THANK YOU for shopping and dining Montrose!
We are the real deal! Montrose IS the Merriest!

The MONTROSE SHOPPING PARK ASSOCIATION (MSPA) is proud to be a platinum sponsor of the Montrose Glendale Christmas Parade. It's a joy to prance down Honolulu wishing everyone MERRY CHRISTMAS and proclaim our SHOP MONTROSE FIRST message.

This year the MSPA was well represented (from left) by Board President ANDRE ORDUBEGIAN, Board Secretary KIM KELLY, Board member and Marketing Chair GIGI GARCIA, and MSPA member & Social Media/Publicist MARY DAWSON.

As Well as MSPA member, Business Manager, & Event Coordinator DALE DAWSON (right) and Board member & Harvest Market Chair KEN GRAYSON and wife.

Here is the scene as we approached the intersection of Honolulu and Ocean View. Lights, vintage banners, and our live Christmas tree made for a beautiful old town setting as thousands of people lined the streets. 

The banner on the side of our carriage reads
In this age of internet shopping we are thankful to people who support our one of a kind businesses by shopping and dining in our stores. One way we say thanks is by offering free horse drawn rides in this very wagon. You can experience it when you shop Montrose on the weekends! 

We invite you to enjoy the holiday season in Montrose. The stores are decorated and stocked with handpicked goods. Many offer free gift wrap. The restaurants are ready to entertain you and your guests. The salons are here to help you feel beautiful. And then there’s the lights. 
Thousands of them.
