‘Shop Stettler’ awareness campaign is underway

Promotional campaign runs through to June 8th

It’s that time of year again when the ‘Shop Stettler’ campaign is in full swing.

Running through to June 8th, organizers are promoting Shop Stettler with the Shop Stettler’s Stampede promotion as well.

”This promotion will run until June 8th to encourage shoppers to get ready for the rodeo season just prior to the Stettler Steel Wheel Stampede,” said Donna Morris, project manager with the Stettler Board of Trade.

A grand prize draw will be made on Monday, June 10th for a prize package valued at $1,000 in gift cards and prizes from participating businesses.

Morris said that Shop Stettler’s Stampede will run the same way the Shop Stettler’s Cash Cards do in that every purchase receives one entry with additional entries being awarded for each increment of $100 spent.

If a customer spends $237.63, they will receive three entries, for example.

They can then drop off completed entries in the drop boxes provided at participating businesses for the Grand Prize Draw.

“It’s a program for local businesses to help encourage customers to shop locally and we are just trying to help promote those businesses, as well as what those businesses do for our community,” said Morris.

“Shopping locally is a huge component of our businesses with a lot of money going back into the community,” she said, adding there are 61 participating businesses this year as well as some sponsors. “Our tag line this year is ‘Shop Local, Shop Stettler and Win’.

As the Board of Trade web site points out, “Shopping locally not only helps promote the local economy, but also supports the strength and growth of our community including events and not-for-profit organizations.

“Each time you shop local you help a business stay open which in turn pays taxes to benefit important Town-provided services like our local RCMP, our Volunteer Fire Department, senior services, the Stettler Public Library, road maintenance and parks and contributes to the quality of life you enjoy.

“We also encourage our businesses to promote it themselves,” Morris added. “So they sometimes have sales within their own stores. But in the end, it’s also about awareness and of course the grand prize which is $1,000 in gift cards and prizes from participating businesses.

“It’s very impressive – so if you wanted to win something, this is the one to win!
