Truro’s shops, restaurants and services have been doing everything they can to practice social distancing. Many of them have made heartbreaking decisions to close their doors or reduce their hours in order to keep their customers, staff, friends and family safe. This financial hit will be very hard for many of them to get through. Let’s show them some love and gratitude for all they do for us on a daily basis!
Downtown Truro and the Town of Truro have partnered to do a Downtown Dollar Giveaway to help support small businesses (50 employees or less) in Truro.
We understand much of the public is experiencing financial hardship as well, however IF you are able, we want to thank you for supporting local by giving you FREE Downtown Dollars (redeemable at over 100 downtown businesses and never expire!) Here’s how it works:
– Starting March 19th until April 1st, purchases of $20 or greater, made in Truro at a small business (50 employees or less) will be eligible to be redeemed for Free Downtown Dollars!
All you have to do is send us a copy of your receipt with the date included!
– Make a purchase $20 or greater and we will match 25% of your original purchase in Downtown Dollars, up to a maximum of $25 (For example, make a purchase of $100, receive $25 FREE Downtown Dollars). If you make multiple purchases, great! Spread the love to multiple businesses and each purchase will be eligible. We will mail or deliver your FREE Downtown Dollars to you!
– Check with your favourite business and see how they are accommodating and practicing social distancing, many have websites where you can make purchases online, are providing delivery, can package for takeout, etc. Message them on social media and they will let you know!
So grab a gift certificate to use later, pay for a hair appointment in advance, order take-out from your favourite restaurant, and support the small businesses in Truro – the people who make our town tick!
For entry, please email email@example.com. Send us a photo of your receipt (must include the business name, date of purchase and purchase total). Purchases will be eligible until April 1st, 2020 at 9pm. Photos must be submitted by April 1st in order to be redeemed.
*We are giving away a fixed amount of Downtown Dollars, once we run out, the giveaway will end. Please submit your purchases as soon as possible to ensure they are eligible for redemption.
