The memory of Peter Lewis lives on with his favorite holiday tradition – Peter’s Stocking. For the 41st holiday season, Walter Stewart’s invites our youngest shoppers to enter for a chance to win the toys in the giant red Christmas stocking hanging in our store. A tradition started by the late Peter Lewis. “Just seeing the happy faces of the kids makes me smile,” Peter said back in 2006 in response to this annual event. The toys were purchased from the New Canaan Toy Store with a few “Peter approved” traditional music toys and classic games. Walter Stewart’s will also donate toys purchased from New Canaan Toy Store to the Toys for Tots drive. There is a Toys for Tots collection box next to our customer service desk. Entries are available at every checkout. The winner will be announced December 20th.
Walter Stewart’s is now holding its annual Holiday T-Bill Donation Days drive to benefit local charities, from December 12th through December 18th. T-Bill customers are invited to donate our T-Bill balances to the participating local non-profit organization of your choice.
A list of the participating non-profits will be posted at each customer check-out. Shoppers who would like to participate in the T-Bill Donation Days program may obtain a courtesy card from the store’s customer service staff or sign up online.
