Shop Local Campaign Begins November 23 “Black Friday”

The Willard Companies is sponsoring it’s annual “Shop Local” campaign by rewarding patrons who shop local at participating retail businesses within the Westlake Towne Center starting Friday, November 23 (“Black Friday”) through Friday, December 21, 2012.

Customers who spend a minimum of $35.00 at participating Westlake Towne Center retail businesses will receive two free movie passes to Westlake Cinema. The movie vouchers are good for all show times, but do not include concessions or 3-D premiums. Promotion is limited to one transaction per customer and while supplies last.

The participating retail businesses at Westlake Towne Center include: Verizon Wireless Zone, Haywood’s Jewelers, Merle Norman, Westlake Salon & Spa, The Cottage Gate, Smith Mountain Building Supply, UPS Store, The Cabinet Gallery, Interiors by Kris, City Electric Supply, Lake Home Medical, Smith Mountain Lake Wellness & Fitness, and Ferguson Kitchen and Bath.

According to Christopher Finley, Director of Marketing and Communications for The Willard Companies, parent company of Westlake Towne Center, “Shopping locally keeps money right here at Smith Mountain Lake and directly supports members of our community. This program is a way to reward those who recognize this importance.”

Qualifying customers can pick up movie vouchers by bringing store receipt to The Willard Companies corporate office located at 75 Builders Pride Drive, Suite 200 (behind Smith Mountain Building Supply and beside Ferguson Kitchen and Bath) between 8:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. Monday through Friday. The offices are closed from 12 – 1 for lunch. For additional information, please contact (540) 721-5288.
