To encourage business owners and consumers to support each other heading into the holidays, CFIB is launching the Big Thank You contest as part of its #SmallBusinessEveryDay campaign. The contest is sponsored by eBay Canada, Scotiabank and Mastercard. Consumers can enter to win one of six Big Thank You boxes that include $500 cash to spend at a local business by sending a thank you message to their favourite business at smallbusinesseveryday.ca. The business that was nominated by the draw winner will also win a Big Thank You box, including a $2,500 cash prize.
To highlight the unique products small businesses have to offer, CFIB has included a treat from a small business from every province and territory in each box, including chocolate-covered potato chips from Cows in PEI, liquid cake batter from Jenna Rae Cakes in Manitoba, and pillow spray from Walrus Home in BC. The contest will run for the next six weeks, with one draw per week.
