Small businesses and the people who run them are at the heart of a growing community! The City of Chestermere in partnership with the Chestermere Chamber of Commerce and the Chestermere Anchor want to feature our local business owners and help share their stories.
Every week for 25 weeks (November 21, 2018 – May 8, 2019) we will feature 1 local business in the Anchor. This feature will include editorial, a photo, and space for your logo and a small ad, if you wish.
To be selected as a featured business, you need to complete the form below and let us know a bit about you and your business. A selection committee of 2 local residents, 2 Chamber members and 1 city staff person will review all of the submissions and select those that will be featured.Deadline for submission is November 30, 2018
Why are only 25 businesses being featured?
This is a new program being run as a pilot for 25 weeks. If it is deemed successful, then it may be funded for an extended period of time.
How are the businesses being selected?
The first 5 businesses to be featured will be the Chamber of Commerce Business of the Year award recipients for 2018. The remaining 20 featured businesses will be selected by the selection committee. They will be looking for stories of interest – so make sure to let us know what makes your business unique, what drives your passion, and why your “local story” should be shared.
Do I need to be a Chamber member?
No. This program is open to all local businesses. You do however have to have a valid business licence.
How much does it cost to participate?
It’s FREE! If selected, you will be contacted by one of the Anchor’s reporters for an interview and to get a few photos for the feature. If you would like to include an ad about your business, you can supply one and it will become part of your feature (ad specs will be provided to you).
What if I do not have an ad for my business to supply?
You can work with the Anchor to have them create an ad for you. There is a nominal fee for this, but the space to run your ad would still be free.
