“Promoting local businesses is important to us. In addition to the mind, body, spirit aspect, this event comes at a time when end of year marketing budgets are thin and this is a cost effective way for them to increase visibility for low money and meet face-to-face with potential customers – creating a push in our local economy.” The event provides an opportunity to showcase local businesses and products in a way that takes advantage of all senses, whereas, consumers can see, taste, hear and touch and feel products and services available. Not to mention, it’s an incredible opportunity for holiday sales, gift certificate purchases and new year resolution bookings. Imagine if we all did our part to promote local business owners and professionals, this is my part to do just that. ” says Cruz
