A Lot Of Chattering About The Boat

Posted on October 19, 2014 - Filed Under Business, Life, Marketing, This Country, This Town | 1 Comment

Everyone had been asking if the boat has brought us more business this summer, not only our customers, but other business owners and some of our town councils as well.  The mayor haven’t been by but that’s because she is so busy, guess she doesn’t have time for us the small potatoes hahahahah!  But yes, […]

Ads At Bowling Alley

Posted on July 6, 2013 - Filed Under Business, Marketing, This Town | Leave a Comment

A few months ago, we were approached by the local bowling alley to put up ads there for a very reasonable amount.  We were pretty excited about it because the ad quotes were reasonable and we need some kind of marketing even though it will be our 14 yrs in business this August.  Plus, the […]

I figured I should get some friends from Asia to come invest in this town.  Why?  because even without the ferry – and tourist – there is still potential in this town.  There is so much land here that one can put up steel buildings  for factories to come in or different kind of industry […]

We used to have a newsletter/flyer printed out every month for our store’s customer – but when our kid came a long, the spouse didn’t have much time to do it anymore.  When the kid got older – we became pretty busy just managing the store alone – so we didn’t do it anymore.  But […]

TV Stand

We used to carry tv stand at our store and not just your cheapie type of tv stand – ours were pretty solid wood ones and our supplier is one of the leading supplier around Canada.  Alas, it didn’t sell as well as we had hope – so now we don’t carry tv stand no […]

Shopping Downtown

Posted on January 23, 2011 - Filed Under Business, Marketing, This Country, This Town | Leave a Comment

Since we are a downtown business – we try to only support our downtown businesses too.  If I needed a shoe – I would go to Runner’s Attic – now only if they didn’t have the thing we need then we would patronize some other stores – and even go online – like the addidas […]

I Worked Downtown Day

Posted on June 3, 2010 - Filed Under Amused, Marketing, Ranting, This Town | Leave a Comment

So we’ve been told or encouraged to buy a t-shirt for $10 or $15 to show that we worked downtown – it’s at Pier 1 – right behind us and not on Main Street – weird place to have an event if you asked me.  And then the Business and Employment Center is hosting a […]

Yes ! we are seriously contemplating about our summer hours – and we are not even into summer yet – but with the weather getting warmer and the last few nites seeing more customers walking in after 8pm – makes us want to change our hours and open longer at night.  So  here I am […]

Snap Dollars Actually Pays!

Posted on October 25, 2008 - Filed Under Finances, Internet, Marketing | Leave a Comment

Another check that’s been a long time coming, Snap Dollars advertises that you can get paid to read emails. It’s true, but at 3 to 5 cents per email it can take a very long time to save up the $40 minimum payout amount. You get a $5 bonus just for signing up […]

Signs Everywhere

Posted on October 20, 2008 - Filed Under Amused, Marketing | Leave a Comment

Between a lot of houses in town being for sale and a whole bunch more proclaiming their support for this councilor or that mayoral candidate, there’s barely an empty lawn to be seen. Not forgetting those people who are lucky enough to run a home based business, which of course needs signage as well.
I […]

Email Marketing

Posted on July 24, 2008 - Filed Under Internet, Marketing | Leave a Comment

I hate spam email as much as the next guy, but there are a lot of good uses for Email marketing software such as sending out newsletters or specials to those customers who have signed up for such things. Using something like Outlook Express can work for small lists, but if you’re sending out […]
