Shop the (Liberty Village) NeighbourhoodLife | Written on November 18, 2015
There is a LOT to love about the holiday season in Liberty Village. And we do mean A LOT. Our central (and very convenient) location makes it really easy to enjoy holiday events throughout Toronto! And shopping for that perfect gift is that much easier when you live in an area with so many incredible and unique stores. In Liberty Village, the lights and decorations are already out in large numbers and for many of us, those are tell-tale signs of the season. We’re ready to enjoy the very best that it has to offer.
And with that festive atmosphere comes another awesome event! Shop The Neighbourhood is a great way to embrace the holiday season, by supporting businesses right here in Liberty Village. It’s a one-day event, planned for Saturday November 28th this year that encourages shoppers to visit stores in their area and, well, “shop the neighbourhood”. The name makes complete sense now, right?
There are lots of perks to this great program. For store owners, signing up for Shop The Neighbourhood is as easy as visiting the Yellow Pages Shop The Neighbourhood website, filling out the forms and creating a deal to attract patrons to your location. Yup, that’s it. And that little bit of commitment to this initiative goes a mighty long way. There are tons of resources available to help store owners spread the word about their participation in this event. And they’re all free! From the YP Shopwise App that helps customers and clients easily find your deal online to a storefront display to signal to passers-by that you’re a Shop The Neighbourhood participant to a Social Media Kit (easily accessible from the website), logos, web banners, tips and tricks and loads more, there’s lots available to help you publicize your store’s involvement in Shop The Neighbourhood. It is, in essence, a bit like joining a super cool team that rewards you with great paraphernalia that allows you to broadcast the fact that you’ve joined their ranks. A little bit of promotion can go a long way, so businesses are encouraged to take full advantage of everything that comes with signing up for Shop The Neighbourhood.
For local residents, this is a fantastic opportunity to get great buys from some of your favourite stores in Liberty Village. What’s more, it comes right as the holiday shopping season is heating up and many of us are thinking about gifts for family, friends and acquaintances. And how awesome is it to have all of this right at your doorstep! Shop The Neighbourhood is happening in our neighbourhood and it’s for our neighbourhood. With the variety of novelty and unique items available in Liberty Village that makes this event that much cooler.
