$10 off Coupon

The Better Together Task Force has initiated a new flyer that includes a $10 off Coupon (shown here) to be used at participating stores in Downtown Orangeville.   I sent out an email last week to let you know that you may see an increased number of customers asking to redeem them and wanted to share a copy here so that you will know what it is when someone hands it to you! The BIA will reimburse the full face value of the coupon, just hang on to it along with a copy of the transaction receipt, and we will collect them every month and issue your re-imbursement via cheque or visa payment.  Please let me know if your business would like to participate in the program and if you have any questions!  

Downtown Orangeville Website Business Directory

With all the changes in recent months, I would like to ask you to please take a moment to view your listing on the Downtown Orangeville website directory and confirm that all of your information is correct and up to date.  Has your website, address, or phone number changed?  Perhaps your business model has changed, and you would like us to add some additional keywords or search tags?   Please let me know!  

Come In, We’re Open!

We’ve made a few printer-friendly signs that you may wish to use to signify to your customers that you are open (especially if your front door is usually shut).  It would be great to see these cheery signs posted in doorways and windows, to let the public know that Downtown Orangeville is open for business! Please see attached. [pdf-embedder url="" title="Open Signs"]
