The Windham Region Chamber of Commerce is partnering with several other Eastern CT Chambers to promote our local small businesses during the holiday season. This will be the second year we are working together. Any participating business will be included in a “passport” where customers will be encouraged to visit starting on Small Business Saturday. If you want to be listed in the passport for customers to find you (and they range from Mystic to Old Sturbridge) please make sure you sign up. The deadline is October 15. The flyer is attached. The link to sign up is here: ChamberECT.com/trail
There were hundreds of participants last year and we expect even more this year. Customers with stamps in their passports are eligible for a grand prize…a round trip vacation to Ireland!!!
We will be having an organizational meeting to go over the details and to supply you with the passports, posters, stamps, etc. that you will need to be a participating location. Please call Diane if you have any questions at 860-428-7739.
HOW IT WORKS:
Beginning on Small Business Saturday, November 30, and continuing until Tuesday, December 24, individuals can pick up a Holiday Shopping Trail passport at participating venues throughout eastern CT. Shoppers will accumulate stickers in their passports by visiting or making purchases at shops, restaurants, and other local businesses. These stickers will enter participants into a special drawing for prizes.
WHY IT WORKS:
The Trail is designed to bring customers through your door; the more stores a shopper visits the better the prize they can enter to win. The grand prize is a pair of airline tickets to Ireland! You can turn foot traffic into a sale or begin to build a relationship with a new customer.
SIGN UP TO PARTICIPATE:
There is no cost to participate, and your business will be featured on the Holiday Shopping Trail passport and in related marketing. This is a great opportunity to bring shoppers in your doors this holiday season, so don’t miss out!
DEADLINE TO SIGN UP: October 18, 2019
