Getting the message out!

It has been a hectic week for the Red Bulb Team. We are involved in our first community event when we assisted with the fun fair at Oscar Peterson School. The fun fair is a charity event held to raise money for the school and we are glad we are invited to participate by Dallas.  Not only are we doing something good, but we are also able to meet some of our future customers for the first time, including folks who have left encouraging messages on our Facebook page. Always great to put faces to names and we cannot wait to see them at our store.

This week also marks the first time we are mentioned in any publication, which in this case, is the Stouffville Sun Tribune on Sat. The story was about us receiving a partial loan from the Town to help in installing  new folding windows and a new door at our cafe. Apparently we are the first to apply and obtain our approval successfully. This would not be possible without the help of Anna Rose(our new Downtown Coordinator) and Andrew McNeely(Director of Planning and Building Services). Together with Rebecca Mustard(Economic Development Officer), they are folks from the Town Hall who have given us great support over the last few months. This is especially important for small businesses like us, who does not have extended resources like franchises and major corporations.

Our next event is the Strawberry Festival in Stouffville and we will be setting up a booth on 3rd Jul(Sat). The main objective is to get our name out there and also to hand out our promotion coupons for the Summer. We are of course keen to showcase a few coffees and food items that we will be selling, including ice coffee for the summer, cupcakes and cookies.  We are excited about the event as it will be a great opportunity for us to do some  marketing before our official opening.

and yes, we have the tentative date of 24th July marked as our official Red Bulb Opening. After eight years of dreaming, decisions, planning, and execution, we now have a date.  Almost there ! :-)
