It’s time for another “Loved in Your ‘Hood” contest. This time we’re on the hunt for Canada’s best independent retailers. We want to know about small, local shops – not the big chains or household names.
What’s your neighborhood go-to place for fashion, home furnishings, or hobby and craft items? Where do you “shop local” for the perfect gift, the perfect outfit, the perfect thing you need?
Nominate your favourite independent retailer below or on Vicinity’s Facebook page and explain what you love about the shop’s products, service, location, and more. Every nomination comes with a chance of winning one of two cash prizes!
How it works
The contest runs from October 05 to October 30, 2015. During that time, anyone can enter the contest – just click on the “Retail Shop Contest” tab on our Facebook page and log in with your Facebook credentials. Then fill in the entries and tell us why you love your favourite retailer.
A Vicinity panel will judge entries based on three criteria: customer service, quality of product, and community involvement. If you submit the winning nomination, you’ll enter to win a $500 Visa gift card!
The shop selected as winner will receive the title, “Loved in Your ‘Hood: Retail” and $500 in marketing support from Vicinity. Plus, a $50 Visa gift card will be awarded to one lucky participant through a random draw.
Need to do some research?
Maybe you should visit a few other local retailers to make sure your favourite shop is really the best. Visit www.vicinityrewards.ca/locations to find local retail shops near you!
In any case, let us know the retailer you love — and why you love them!
