In November, we launched our first ever group promotion with downtown businesses. We ask them to join a campaign to be a "Christmas Store" and make Main Street Winsted's Christmas Store for "12 Days" BEFORE Christmas. It was a great success with 20 participating businesses!
Let us promote your business this Christmas! FREE advertising directs customers to spend money at your store or restaurant for the chance to win our end-of-season giveaway.
For Twelve Days BEFORE Christmas: December 4-15
HERE’S HOW IT WORKS:
Customers enter your store or restaurant.
When they make a purchase, you give them a contest entry card.
The next time they make a purchase from any participating merchant (including you), they submit their entry card for the contest drawing.
Friends of Main Street collects the entry cards daily from each merchant for the drawing, which will be held on Saturday, December 18.
The business that submits the most entries has the option to host the drawing!
WHAT YOU GET:
Free advertising on radio station WZBG (a $900 value for 12 days) and on the Friends of Main Street digital network, including our website, Facebook page, and weekly email newsletter.
Incentives for every customer to make an actual purchase from your establishment.
Entry forms for your customers to enter an end-of-season contest drawing.
Your business name is printed on promotional posters and on every contest entry.
Hurry! Signups must be completed by Monday, November 29, 5:00 pm!
