How would you like to win $1,000 worth of gift cards right before Christmas?  

Did you say YES?  Well, let me tell you how you can have the chance to win this fabulous prize.

Manor’s small businesses need your support

Debbie Charbonneau, Community Development Manager for the City of Manor has introduced a new “Shop Small-Shop Local” campaign that needs the participation of both Manor businesses and Manor customers to be successful.

Beginning November 1, 2021, and running through November 30, 2021, every time you spend $20 in a participating “Shop Small-Shop Local” business in Manor, customers get the chance to enter a ticket into a drawing to win $1,000 in gift cards.  The drawing will be held on Friday, December 3, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at City Hall. So, the more you spend, the more chances you have to enter the contest.   I’ll say it again … who wouldn’t want to win $1,000 in gift cards right before Christmas?

You may ask yourself, why should I shop small?  Why should I shop in my community instead of shopping at a big box store or at a national chain?   Here are a few reasons why you should shop small and shop local.

As a consumer, you are a key part in helping small businesses thrive.  By shopping or dining at small businesses in your community, you are showing support for the businesses in your neighborhood and the community you call your own.

Did you know that small businesses make a major economic impact?  More than half of the U.S.’s jobs since 1995 were created by small businesses.  And according to the Small Business Administration, since 1990, big businesses eliminated 4 million jobs, while small businesses added 8 million jobs.  The more you shop or dine at a local business, the more potential there is for future job opportunities in those same small businesses.

Small businesses create a sense of community.  You are much more likely to get to know a small business owner in your neighborhood.  They can provide more personable, hands-on, and memorable customer service which encourages you to shop and to dine with them more as you become friends and family in your community.
