Enjoy The Holidays In Clayton

Help Local Firefighters, Police Make It Best Toys For Tots Drive Ever

Clayton is known as a chic suburban community with urban flair, thus offering a vast variety of consumer products, many of which are concentrated in a walkable area.

“As the holiday season approaches, I extend a heartfelt invitation to join in supporting our local boutiques, stores, restaurants and other businesses," says Clayton Mayor Michelle Harris. ​​​​​

She adds, "By choosing to shop local, you're not only finding unique, high-quality gifts and experiencing the warmth of Clayton’s hospitality, you're also helping to sustain the very essence of what makes the City of Clayton special. The success of our local businesses is vital to the prosperity of our community, and your support makes all the difference.”

Regarding retail and holiday celebratory options, Clayton city records indicate the area encompasses at least 77 stores, 79 restaurants, seven boutique shops, six hotels and three art galleries. 

Affectionately referred to as the 'Manhattan of the Suburbs,' Clayton also reflects locally owned and operated stores, such as Lusso’s, Lola and Penelope’s, Sweet Boutique, Seedz Provisions, and How Sweet It Is. 

Take Part In Toys For Tots

Clayton Police and Fire Department professionals are collecting new toys for the Toys For Tots U.S. Marine Corps program. Toys may be dropped off at the Clayton City Hall, inside the police department lobby, 10 S. Brentwood Blvd., or at the fire station in the apparatus bay (Forsyth entrance), at 10 N. Bemiston Ave. Toys also can be dropped off in the atrium of the Center of Clayton, 50 Gay Ave.

This year, police officers also will collect toys at the last “Coffee with a Cop” event of this year on Dec. 1 from 8-10 a.m. at the City Coffeehouse and Creperie at 36 N. Brentwood Blvd.  

The 2023 Toys for Tots campaign will wrap up with a pancake breakfast on Dec. 9 between 9-11 a.m. at the firehouse, 10 N. Bemiston Ave. That event will close out this year’s drive with a final “Fill the Fire Truck” push for remaining toys. 

Natural Christmas trees or Hanukkah bushes will be collected throughout the month of January on regular Clayton yard waste collection days. Trees must be free of all decorations including tinsel, garland, ornaments and lights.
