Westfield, MA, September 4, 2019 – This year the Greater Westfield Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with many local businesses throughout Westfield, has planned a great event in support of Small Business Saturday® which drives commerce to small businesses. Many of these businesses have been meeting to plan a Small Business Saturday event. “Westfield on Weekends is working with the Chamber to support Small Business Saturday. Their commitment to us is invaluable and we are happy to help with this great event,” said Amber Danahey, president of the WOW board. Other businesses who have been on either the gameboard committee or marketing committee include: For K-9’s & Felines, George’s Jeweler’s, Shortstop Bar & Grill, Flowers by Webster, WOW, Mina’s Wine & Spirits, and Aflac.
The Chamber recognizes the importance of supporting local businesses, the jobs they provide, and the culture they instill in local communities and is excited about promoting this event on both Friday and Saturday, November 29th and 30th respectively. “While American Express has changed their model this year to shop small every day, we decided to keep it on the historical Saturday after Thanksgiving,” said Kate Phelon, executive director of the Chamber.
We are asking everyone to come out and shop in Westfield to support our local businesses on November 29 & 30, 2019 and can easily participate by playing the game the committee has designed.
Businesses can get “on board” by contacting the Greater Westfield Chamber of Commerce to secure a game square by October 1, 2019. Squares are limited to the first 40 businesses. Membership is not required to participate. The cost of a square is $25 cash or check or $30 credit card. All proceeds collected will go towards cash prizes, advertising, and promotional costs. All businesses who participate will also be given a poster board size of the game board to display in their windows, sponsored by Staples.
Thanks to our sponsor, the Pennysaver, shoppers can get “in the game” by getting a game board which will be printed in the Pennysaver on November 21, 2019 and then go shopping. Shoppers will visit at least 10 participating merchants to be eligible for cash prizes. No purchase is necessary and must be over 18 to win. There will be five drop-off locations for shoppers to leave their entry form.
