After more than a year of COVID-19, it’s definitely time to show some love to Red Deer businesses.
That can be done by shopping locally and by shining a spotlight on your favourite businesses. The annual Best of Red Deer contest helps you do the latter.
You can cheer on your favourites in the city by voting in the Best of Red Deer 2021 contest.
“We’re excited to launch Best of Red Deer at a time when it’s so important to focus on positives. Best of Red Deer is all about celebrating local businesses and their contribution to our community and our lives,” said Mary Kemmis, publisher of the Red Deer Advocate and president of Black Press Media’s Prairie Division.
Not only can customers recognize local businesses that have been there to serve them during this difficult time, voters will also have a chance to win $500 in Save-on-Foods gift cards.
The contest focuses on retailers, food, entertainment and services, with 96 categories in total.
People can vote every day in each category.
Nominate 10 businesses, and receive one entry in the draw. Nominate 20 businesses, and get two entries. Thirty nominations means three entries, and so on.
Fill in all 96 categories and receive 15 bonus entries.
Nominations close May 2 at 11:59 p.m.
