With the holiday season behind us, small businesses across the country are looking towards 2017 and exploring ways to work with their customers and communities.
To support this, Valpak launched the first ever Valpak Shop Small Contest on January 30, with Small Business Saturday founding partner American Express.
The contest, created to amplify Small Business Saturday’s mission to celebrate independently-owned businesses, invites consumers to nominate their favorite small business by sharing stories about what makes their local business special – from a beloved item or service to the impact they have on the community. Entries will be judged by Valpak and American Express.
The winning business will receive a $5,000 American Express gift card and a 12-month Valpak marketing campaign, including print and digital products. Other prizes include:
- Three runner-ups will win $1,000 American Express gift cards and a 3-month Valpak marketing campaigns
- Consumers who crafted the winning entries will receive an American Express gift card in the same amount as the respective business
Nominations are open through April 15th and the winners will be announced in May as a celebration of National Small Business Week.
