Free Coffee at Small World.
Yep, you read that right. Tomorrow – Saturday December 4th from Noon – 2pm head to Small World Coffee on Witherspoon Street in Princeton and mention PrincetonScoop at the register for a free small brewed coffee. Then proceed directly to the community tasting table and learn about how you can win $1000 in gift cards to select Princeton businesses.
Wait – free coffee and a chance to win $1000 in gift cards? Yep, right again.
The catch:: you need to make a 90 second video themed “Why I shop Local.” You can use your iPhone, a Flip camera or your groovy high tech camcorder to create your video in Princeton. Besides the cool Grand Prize there are other prizes too and everyone who enters gets a gift basket. Submissions are due by December 10th – so get on it.
More about this contest:
The contest is in it’s 2nd year and is run by Hometown Princeton, a group of Princeton merchants who came together to share with our community why it is so vital that we “shop local”. When you shop at Princeton’s locally owned businesses you help to build a strong, sustainable community and you help Princeton keep its unique character and charm. Shop and dine in Princeton because it’s an investment in your community that pays off every day. Did you know that 45 cents of every dollar spent in local businesses stays in the community, where it is used to hire local people, utilize local services, make purchases from other locally owned businesses, and support local organizations? Compare this to the 13 cents per dollar that stays here from purchases made at a national chain store and 0 cents for purchases made online.
Our favorite shops and restaurants make Princeton unique and vibrant. We all want it to stay that way and the only way it will is with the community’s support and that means spending your money shopping locally.
Anyway – you read all about this cool contest, the complete rules and how to enter HERE: or just come to Small World tomorrow to learn all about it in person.
You don’t have to be a videographer or have great editing skills. A camera and an idea will set you on your way. You’ll have fun creating it and we’ll all enjoy watching it. (It would be a great family project as well!) If you love Princeton – you shop local and if you shop local, this contest is for you.
See you tomorrow for free coffee at Small World and you’ll learn everything you need to know about this fantastic contest. Tell them PrincetonScoop sent you!
