2020 Golden Ticket Promotion!

As you know, the Holiday Festival featuring the Christmas Walk has been cancelled this year due to COVID-19.  Instead, the New Providence Business Community is sponsoring a NEW promotion designed to showcase New Providence merchants, drive traffic into your location, and encourage repeat business.   Each time a customer makes a purchase, you can give them a Golden Ticket scratch off card (you can choose to give more cards away with bigger purchase amounts).  The scratch off card will either have a winning prize from a participating business (see ideas below), a big "Golden Ticket" prize, or a "thank you for your business - please try again" type of message.  The idea is to have a few (maybe 3 or 4) really big "Golden Ticket" prizes, but lots of smaller prizes that will bring customers into your store.  The scratch off tickets will be randomly packaged and distributed so that none of us (including the promotion organizers!) will know which businesses have the big "Golden Ticket" prize cards to hand out.  It is up to you to decide how many prize tickets you would like to provide - there is no minimum number.  Any number of prizes is appreciated! There will be one prize per ticket, so the more prizes you provide, the more tickets for your business there will be.   

The event will take place starting Friday, November 27 (the Friday after Thanksgiving) and continue until all of the scratch off tickets have been distributed.

We would like to have most of the scratch off tickets be winners.  The prizes can be small or large - whatever works for you!  The more prize tickets we have, the more fun it will be for shoppers, and the more customers will come into town and your stores!   

YOU DO NOT HAVE TO FURNISH PRIZES TO BE ABLE TO DISTRIBUTE THE SCRATCH OFF TICKETS.  IF YOU WOULD JUST LIKE TO RECEIVE TICKETS TO DISTRIBUTE, PLEASE CLICK THE LINK BELOW TO SIGN UP TO PARTICIPATE AND LET US KNOW HOW MANY TICKETS YOU WOULD LIKE. (Because the tickets are randomly distributed, the tickets that you receive will contain prizes from other businessess - this way we all support each other!

If you do not register to receive tickets by the registration deadline of Nov. 1, we will not be able to supply any to you once the promotion begins!

Here are some prizes your business can provide to participate:

If you are not sure right now what prize(s)you want to provide, you can just say “Free gift” and the quantity you will provide (eg. 20 - Free Gift). Then you can give the winner a treat or giveaway of your choice when they come to your business to redeem their ticket or you can let the customer choose an item, maybe from a special area in your shop (for example, from a specific basket, shelf or case).

Free cup of coffee, hot chocolate, soda, bag of chips, cookie, etc.
