Show your Love for Local this Valentine’s Day

Windsor, ONTARIO – All the world, but especially Windsor-Essex, deserves a bit more love right now -- and the Downtown Windsor Business Improvement Association is committed to giving just that. 

“We considered how we could give, while at the same time promoting and supporting our downtown businesses, who have lived in and loved this community, and continue to do so even during the most unprecedented times,” said DWBIA chair Brian Yeomans. 

On the heels of its Shop2Win holiday contest, the DWBIA is launching a second round, this time focused on Valentine’s Day. Shoppers are invited to shop and dine downtown for the next two weeks, taking photos of receipts of items purchased at retailers, restaurants and businesses within the DWBIA boundaries between the dates of February 1 and February 14, 2021. They can upload these receipts to for the chance to win one of 4 weekly prizes of $100 in gift cards to downtown businesses. The contest runs for two weeks, for a total of 8 prizes.

“There’s a lot to fall in love with downtown,” adds Yeomans. “It’s the products, it’s the places, it’s the people. The contest is a fun way to explore all of what we have.”
