Once upon a time a US Dollar circulated seven times around a neighborhood before leaving; now it takes only minutes. Travel to other retail areas and online shopping are part of the equation but we CAN still choose where we spend a portion of our money. #SHOPSMALLYO – occurs once a year in conjunction with Small Business Saturday (Nov 24th, 2018), and encourages the community to support local businesses who need their love.
CUSTOMER & SHOP CONTEST:
It’s our Holiday Tree $1K Giveaway. The Youngstown Flea is challenging every ‘local’ shop to rally up everyone they can for YOUR CUSTOMERS to win a decorated Holiday Tree worth $1000 (USD). How you might ask? Simple. When you REGISTER. DONATE. PROMOTE. The shop responsible for the winner of the Holiday Tree automatically wins $500 (USD). It’s easy as ONE. TWO. THREE.
CONTEST RULES / HOW TO PLAY (MUST DO ALL 3 TO PARTICIPATE):
ONE: You must REGISTER: Sign up below by Nov. 3rd to be listed on our website.
TWO: You must DONATE: $10 (OR MORE) gift card to help decorate the Holiday Tree. $1K value is the goal. Anyone can DONATE. Only physical retail shops can participate.
THREE: You must PROMOTE: Tell customers at least (3) three times on social media how they can win. And when they win, you win ($500 USD)!
HOW CAN THEY WIN SO I CAN WIN? GREAT QUESTION!
One (1) official “sticker” or “golden ticket” will be given to each shop only after they REGISTER & DONATE. That’s how your store enters the giveaway. This “sticker/golden ticket” will be hidden, by you, at YOUR shop on an item for sale (ex. customers must look on bottom of their coffee cup). You will PROMOTE the contest via social media from 11/10 to 11/23. When the customer purchases the item and finds the ticket they bring it to Holiday Flea (11/30 at DeYor) as their entry to win the Holiday Tree worth $1000 in gift cards/certificates. All shops are encouraged to have their patrons and themselves use Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to help promote. The patron MUST purchase to participate. Get the official/legal contest rules HERE:
