Exciting news! We are launching a NEW program, South Bruce Shopping Blitz, October 1st to help promote shopping local, specifically in South Bruce! We will run this program from October 1st thru to December 31st to encourage local shopping all the way thru the Christmas season. There is absolutely NO COST to our businesses to participate. Here’s how it works: Shopping Passports Packages will be dropped off to all of the main street businesses but it is available to all South Bruce Businesses to participate – just contact the municipal office and a package can be dropped off to your business if you wish to participate or one can be picked up at the Municipal Office.
• Shoppers will pick up South Bruce Shopping Blitz Passports at any main street business or at the Municipal Office to start their shopping blitz
• Shoppers will have to spend a minimum of $25 at 10 South Bruce Businesses (spend a total of $250) to be eligible for a 1 of 5 chance of winning $500 in South Bruce Gift Certificate Packages
• When they spend a minimum of $25, businesses will place a sticker (will be provided) on one of the designated areas on the passports and write their business name in the spot provided
• Once all 10 spots are filled, participants can drop off their completed passports off at the Municipal Office or at the Drop off box at Mac’s Milk in Mildmay
• There will be 5 draws of $500 in South Bruce Business Gift Certificates Packages that will be drawn the 1st week of January 2021 (Total of $2,500 in prizes)
• If they have already completed one card, shoppers are welcome to start another card – let them keep spending!
**All businesses throughout South Bruce are participating - not just main street businsess**
Spread the wealth - passports that only have one location, will not be eligible for the draws!
South Bruce Council approved the use of funds from the NWMO Resource Fund and Provinicial Funding to support this program while helping our South Bruce Businesses and community.
Please feel free to spread the word to all South Bruce Businesses so that I don’t miss contacting anyone! We are hoping that this program will encourage people to shop local, let them experience the unique shops we have throughout South Bruce and help with the financial burden you have incurred through this pandemic.
