Dear Cortes Friends & Neighbours;
We wish you and your family a very Happy and Healthy New Year! The winter months are often a financial challenge on our small Island. To help you & to encourage you to shop locally, we would like to offer a special discount to Residents of Cortes for January and February, 2013. We will give a 10% discount on most of our inventory at Squirrel Cove General Store. You must reside on Cortes Island to qualify. The 10% discount will apply to our Hardware Department, Garden Centre, and everything in the Store with the following exceptions: fuel (gas & propane), post office, tobacco products, sale items, liquor and dairy & cheese. When you shop locally, your money stays in our community and that helps to support our infrastructure and employ your friends & neighbours. According to a recent study of small communities, $100 spent locally grows to $500.
We sincerely hope that this 10% discount incentive helps you and our community.
O’Byrne & Staff
