Local Businesses - great opportunity!

NewfStock is just a few weeks away -- Bancroft area businesses, you can promote your business at no cost in our welcome package!

NewfStock is a huge gathering of supporters of Newf Friends Newfoundland Dog Rescue (a division of HART) and the 3 day event draws hundreds of dog lovers from across Canada and the US. The main event is on Saturday, Sept 13, 2014 in Millennium Park, Bancroft.

We're putting together welcome packages for attendees, many of whom are coming from out of town and staying 3 or more days in Bancroft. If you'd like to offer a coupon or discount for attendees to encourage them to visit your business while they are in town please drop off your coupons/vouchers/brochures to Sandra at West Wind Gallery & Gifts by the end of the month (please bring a minimum of 250 - more if you want everyone who comes to the park to get one). Welcome packages will be distributed to all attendees who check in to the hotel and to everyone who visits the welcome booth at Millennium Park on Sept 13.

We're also teaming up with one of the organizers of the Hilly Hundred to encourage local businesses to take advantage of a similar opportunity for the weekend of October 4th when Hilly Hundred participants will be in town with their friends and families. If you would like to have your business included in their welcome package, drop off 75 additional coupons/vouchers/brochures and we'll have them added to the Hilly Hundred package.

We hope to see many local businesses support these two events which are filling hotels and bringing visitors to our area, helping to boost the local economy!
