Summer shopping + picnicking in downtown Langley just got more rewarding!

Businesses say ‘Thank you!’ to customers for keeping it local

At no time has it been more important to support your local businesses.

To show their appreciation for the love they’ve received during the pandemic, your Downtown Langley favourites are sharing some fun rewards … and the potential to win big!

“Even while closed, most of our business community never stopped coming up with unique ways to serve their customers with a smile on their face, so to be able to welcome people back in to their stores and see them face-to-face is absolutely wonderful!” says Teri James, executive director of the Downtown Langley Business Association.

“Many now have an online presence they didn’t have before, have incorporated new ways to engage customers on social media and now that they’re able to open their doors, have implemented impeccable safety measures for themselves, their staff and their customers. So suffice it to say, downtown Langley is ready and open for business!”

Pick Up Picnics – Join the Downtown Langley Al Fresco Project! Simply place a pick-up order between noon and 4 p.m. on Friday, Saturday or Sunday between July 3 and Aug. 16 and receive a reusable bag full of fun goodies like a map showing amazing places to enjoy a picnic in Langley City, hand sanitizer, green waste bags and essentially everything you need to enjoy your picnic with friends and family.

To enter a draw for $100 Downtown Dollars and a beautiful, branded picnic blanket, share a picture while enjoying your Pick Up Picnic: follow @discoverdowntownlangley and use the hashtag #langleypickuppicnics.

In addition to weekly draws, you’ll also be in the running for a grand prize of $1,000 Downtown Dollars drawn Aug. 16. Grabbing a delicious meal to go from your favourite restaurant has never been more rewarding! Find all the participating restaurants at pickuppicnics.ca.

Ain’t It Grand – Another fabulous Downtown Langley Shopping Contest! From July 3 to Aug. 28, simply shop at participating businesses and write your name and phone number on the back of the duplicate receipt and pop it in the ballot box. There’s no minimum purchase and you can enter as often as you like. (The information is never used for solicitation and receipts are shredded immediately following the draw.)

At the end of July, the first of two draws will award $1,000 Downtown Dollars – as good as cash at any participating Downtown Langley business. At the end of August, a second draw will award another $1,000! There’s no expiry date on the Downtown Dollars and the DLBA reimburses every business the full value. Learn more at aintitgrand.ca

“Because we’re a small, unique downtown with owner/operators running their businesses, we all work together, support one another and ultimately will get through this together,” James says. “There’s still a tremendous amount of work to do to fully recover, but these events will help stimulate the economy, allow our businesses to say thank you, and have a little bit of fun at the same time.”
