so summer isn't officially over – the sun is still shining and most kids
are not back in school – but fall is coming regardless of signs that
point to the contrary. It is time to thank downtown shoppers for their
patronage and loyalty over the summer months, and to see if we can
attract new visitors to help kick off the fall season.
Our Fall Customer Appreciation Day is Saturday September 20, and we
encourage all downtown businesses to participate to the best of their
ability. Local merchants work very hard to attract visitors into the
downtown, and this is just another way to help ensure a positive
shopping experience for everyone.
Customers will be invited to visit downtown businesses and be entered
into a draw once for every purchase they make on Customer Appreciation
Day. It is our hope that the opportunity to enter the contest multiple
times will encourage visitors to shop at multiple locations.
“Participating” businesses will be given promotional material to let
customers know of the prize draw opportunities.
To be a participating merchant, we request a gift certificate, valued at
$25 or more, to be given away as part of the prize packages.
Contributing to the prize package is a great way to show how much you
value downtown customers and hopefully expand your current customer
All participating merchants will be identified in the newspaper, on the
BIA Website and through social media, along with general promotion
inviting people to come downtown.
More specific details of Customer Appreciation Day have been distributed
by Harold and Sarena, but here is the link in case the notice did not
make it into your hands.
We do require confirmation from each business that wishes to take
part no later than 12:00 noon on Tuesday, September 16.
