Promoting local businesses during these unprecedented times has become one of the most important campaigns for many North Shore cities. The new measures that have decimated the restaurant industry have not affected retail as much but nevertheless store owners have been struggling with the effects of reduced clientele and online sales favoring giants like Amazon. Here at North Shore News, we have covered all the efforts from the different cities to revitalize local businesses. Blainville is no exception.

For the Holidays, Blainville wishes to reward its citizens who participate in the economic vitality of local businesses. This year, the City will draw 25 Blainville residents to whom it will reimburse the amount of their eligible purchases, up to a maximum of $ 200 per winner. The more Blainville residents consume in local businesses, the more their chances of winning will increase!

Citizens are invited to make a purchase, in store or online, from a business in Blainville. All purchases made between November 27 and December 24, 2020 in businesses in Blainville are eligible (boutiques, restaurants, grocery stores, professional services, artisans, etc.) Then a copy of the receipt (paper or electronic) has to be sent online to blainville.ca/raffle or by mail

“Choosing to buy from a local merchant protects jobs, invests in our economy and ensures the prosperity of local businesses.” For the holidays, I invite citizens to visit local businesses to spoil themselves or their loved ones. ”, said Mayor Richard Perreault.
