Join your neighbours in a fully digital shopping guide to showcase why South Granville is THE place for holiday shopping this year. You provide us with the information, we do the work… and the best part – your participation is absolutely free.

Each page will showcase the product or service that your business would like to highlight over the holidays as a perfect gift—for him, for her, for the dog, for the home, etc. You will supply an image, a write-up to describe the product or service and why your store has something special for the holidays, and your businesses contact information.

This information will reside on the online Holiday Gift Guide in our blog-style format (the latest way to deliver a great story), and we will be promoting the guide on our website, the general blog, Facebook, Twitter, (and more), as well as through traditional media channels.

This is at absolutely NO COST to South Granville BIA merchants!

Launch date is November 15th, 2013!


Here’s what we need from each business wanting to participate in the Holiday Gift Guide

One Photo:
Please supply a 4:3 aspect ratio image (ie: 925×694 pixels). We won’t be able to accept anything else… no portrait images. If you need assistance cropping your image, we can help. Utilize your digital camera to frame the shot and take an appropriate picture. If you already have a production shot… even better.

A Headline:
A simple, yet effective 5-7 word phrase synopsizing the product or service you will promote for the Holidays. Short and sweet is best.

A Description:
Please supply a brief write up why this is a great Christmas gift for him, for her, for the dog, for the house, etc. 50 words should be good.

Your Contact Info:
Please supply your… Business/Store Name, Business Address, Telephone Number and Website Address!
