Jinglefest

Along the Moose Trail

Please join us for the first Search for Spruce the Chamber Moose!
Beginning November 30th through December 31, excluding Christmas, the Chamber will visit a participating Members location each morning at opening. Together, we will place the Moose somewhere inside your business and leave it there for the day. After the Moose is placed, we will take a picture and post it to the Chambers Facebook page asking “Where am I?” Throughout the day the we will post clues guiding followers to where the Moose can be found. When customers visit your business, if they are able to locate the Moose they would receive a small discount of your choice – 5%, 10%, 20% – you decide. At the end of the day we will back to collect the Moose to be placed at next location.
We are looking for Members who would like to have the Moose visit your place of business. To participate all you need to do is agree to have the Moose reside in your business for the day and select a discount offering of your choice – we do the rest! We hope the Search for the Moose will encourage shoppers to Shop Local and boost your sales for the Holiday season.
