Its that time of year again
Shop Local
Greetings - it seems like the snow is reminding us that it is time to plan for the SHOP LOCAL campaign which will start November 25th, 2016. This year, in response to member businesses input, the SHOP LOCAL cards have been altered to be used a little differently. There are ten boxes on each card to be validated, requiring that the card holder visit ten different participating businesses for validation. We hope this will help our business members that are not centrally located, encouraging card holders to visit these shops for validation. No purchase is required for card validation, but we certainly encourage SHOP LOCAL, our businesses need your support to remain viable. Draws will be Dec 3rd, Dec 10th, Dec 17th and Dec 24th, each draw will be for $100 in Chamber Bucks to be redeemed at the participating businesses. We will post participating business locations shortly. The drop barrel will be located at the Visitor Centre. More chances to enter, more chances to win. We hope you will SHOP LOCAL, visit local shops, and enter often.
