“The Chamber and the City of Cornwall along with media partners, Cogeco, Cornwall Free News, Le/the Journal, Seaway News, Seawayradio.com, the Standard Freeholder, Variety 101.5, Rock 101.9, and TheCornwallDaily.com are once again presenting Shop at Home For The Holidays,” reports Jeff Bethune, the business organization’s President, “and here’s how it works. When shoppers spend their dollars at participating local stores, restaurants and specialty shops, they become eligible to win valuable gift certificates as well as one of two grand prizes of $1,000 shopping sprees at the merchants who participated in the program.”
A series of feature ads in local media will identify participating merchants and will include a coupon that shoppers clip or download at www.cornwallchamber.com and take with them when they shop. After they complete their purchase, they fill out the coupon and place it in a special box at the store.
There will be weekly draws with some lucky shoppers winning one of a number of $50 gift certificates. At the end of the campaign, there will be a grand prize draw and two lucky shoppers will each win a $1,000 shopping spree.
“I’m pleased that our partners are joining with the Chamber in this program and we want our shoppers to know they can print as many coupons as they want,” says Executive Manager, Lezlie Strasser. “Then, each time they make a purchase in one of the participating businesses, they can deposit a coupon. The more they shop, dine and enjoy entertainment, the greater their chances of winning. Extra ballots will be available at each participating merchant.”
Program details and a list of participating merchants can be found by visiting the Chamber web site. Home For The Holidays begins on Monday, November 22 and continues until Wednesday, December 24.
