The Estevan Mercury has a summer promotion coming that will celebrate the local business community, showcase the fact that you can get everything you need in Estevan, and give people chances to win cold, hard cash.
“You don’t need to shop online or leave town to get everything that we need,” said Deanna Tarnes, the Mercury’s publisher and sales manager.
The Mercury will be giving away $1,000 cash at the end of July and the end of August. The money will have to be spent at local businesses.
People can enter by visiting the 25 participating businesses and filling out an entry form, or submitting a form on the Mercury’s website, www.estevanmercury.ca., under the contests tab.
There is a wide variety of businesses that are participating in the promotion.
“When you shop in town, you get the benefits of not having to wait for your package to arrive,” said Tarnes. “You don’t pay for shipping. You get expert service, and you can take your item home with you today.”
If you shop out of town, then you have to pay for gasoline associated with the trip. When you shop local, you don’t have travel expenses.
And, of course, you’re supporting those who support your community.
Tarnes said people can also look forward to stories throughout the summer on the local business community, showcasing everything that they can find in Estevan.
