Main Street Douglasville is kicking off the month of February with a fun new program called “Downtown Love.” By providing an incentive, the program encourages residents and visitors to spend money and visit downtown Douglasville. The program officially starts Wednesday, February 1 and ends at 2pm on Tuesday, February 28 with a live drawing on the Main Street Douglasville Facebook page. The winner receives a $250 cash prize. “The concept of ‘Downtown Love’ is simple. We are asking everyone to take the time to visit our downtown businesses and show them some love by spending dollars at their business,” said Main Street Manager April McKown. “By adding the incentive, we are hoping to create an element of excitement. And who wouldn’t want to win a $250 cash prize?”
Here’s how you can participate. First, shop at a participating downtown Douglasville business. Participating businesses will have a sign in their front window, and a list will be provided on the Main Street Douglasville Facebook page. There is no minimum purchase requirement. Next, turn in your original receipt to the Douglasville Welcome Center located at 6694 Broad Street between 8am and 5pm, Monday thru Friday. There is no cap to the number of receipts you can turn in. Finally, watch the Main Street Douglasville Facebook page for the live drawing on February 28th at 2pm to see if your receipt is drawn.
“Showing love for our downtown businesses through fun programs like this allows the Main Street Douglasville Program to create excitement for shopping locally in our downtown,” said McKown. “We are hoping that everyone use this opportunity to explore downtown Douglasville and further our continuous efforts to promote ‘shop downtown’.” To learn more about Downtown Love or how your business can participate, contact April McKown at 678.449.3102 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
