According to a report by CountryLiving, the movie with a winter wonderland and Christmas theme was shot in the beautiful city of Winnipeg, Manitoba in Canada. The lead actor of the film, Andrew Walker once in an interview with My Devotional Thoughts said, "Winnipeg’s tax credits are the best in the country, which is one reason why it’s so popular for filming." Merry and Bright filming locations include the Exchange District in Winnipeg, where the architecture looks exactly like that of Chicago.
Located in Winnipeg's downtown area, the bustling District is most well-known for its skyscrapers, historic financial buildings, and early 20th century warehouses. The area is also bordered by Winnipeg's glittering theatre district. Walker further said that the area was used for filming a lot of scenes that were supposed to show Chicago or New York and since Winnipeg is flat, there is a lot of farmland to shoot on as well as a river for filming. Merry and Bright shooting locations were kept keeping in mind the Christmas theme in mind with every frame having Christmas lights and trees.

When Cate, CEO of the Merry & Bright Candy Cane Company, meets Gabe during the Christmas season, she assumes Gabe is the guy her mother is trying to set her up with when actually he works for the company, Empire Corporate Recovery, which has been hired to take a closer look at Merry & Bright's operation and find ways to make the company more profitable.
