Another holiday pivot! Instead of the "stamping map" on November 20, we are launching the "Shop Local to Win" campaign. We are giving away $1,000 over 4 weeks. This is open to every business in Downtown Wabash.
We want to encourage the public to make purchases to enter. We will display a QR code at each of your businesses, ideally near the cash register. When guests are completing their purchase, remind them to scan the QR code to enter. The more times they shop, the more they can enter. If your business has more than one point of sale, we will make copies for you to distribute. If your storefront is operating online only, we have a link for your to share with customers.
Shopping dates are November 20 - December 20. We will select winners once a week on November 30, December 7, 14, and 21. We will contact the winners to arrange pick up.
November 30: 4x$50, 2x$20
December 7: 1x$100, 2x$50, 2x$20
December 14: 1x$100, 2x$50, 2x$20
December 21: 2x$100, 1x$50, 1x$30
Once guests scan the QR code, it takes them to a hidden page on our website. The page has an entry form and asks for their name, phone number, zip code, date of purchase, and business. In order to scan the code, just open the camera app on your smart phone and hover over the QR code. It will automatically pop up the website link. (If someone doesn't have a smart phone, the link is accessible without scanning the QR code. www.wabashmarketplace.org/entry. Enter their info on their behalf or tell them to call us and we'll do it for them! 260-563-0975) We know this isn't 100% fool proof and someone could abuse the entry form, but we'll monitor the entries.
We will provide you with the signage and marketing kit. Use the promotion to leverage your holiday sales!
**Downtown Bucks are slightly different this year. They can be used at ANY downtown business, just like the "Stimulus Bucks" (except food trucks and street vendors). They are valid until March 31, 2021. They are in increments of $10. The bucks are printed on red paper. The backside has a form with name, email, and zip code. In addition to winning downtown bucks, they are also for sale at Visit Wabash County and in our online shop at wabashmarketplace.org.**
