Pop-ups are continuing and big thanks to some of our awesome local businesses for participating in our ‘passport’ promotion!!
Since this is the first pop-up post in a while that the amazing Amanda O. hasn’t written herself, I’m happy to take the opportunity to thank Amanda for her hours of volunteer work on this project. She is unstoppable! It was with such joy and enthusiasm that we unanimously voted Amanda onto the DECA Board this summer to fill a vacancy from earlier in the year.
New Pop-up Shop Hours
All five of our fantastic pop-up shops have decided to stay in the ‘hood for the month of August (yay!), but they’ve made some adjustments to their store hours.
The biggest change will be that Krystle Lee will now be open for private appointments only. As more than one DECA member knows, having Krystle’s one-on-one attention is not only fun, but a great time saver. Need a back-to-work wardrobe? Do yourself a favour and call Krystle. (Here is the account of my awesome shopping experience with Krystle from February!!)
Cheap Thrills is scaling back a bit and will be closed Wednesdays and Sundays. The updated hours are all up on our website.
Always Wanted to be a Secret Shopper?
We have too! So we put together a questionnaire and some instructions on how to be a Mystery Shopper during the month of August at our pop-up shops. Then, because we want feedback on the stores, but we also like an excuse to have a fun Danforth East night out, we’re ending off with a get-together with your fellow Mystery Shopper neighbours on September 10.
Here are the basics, or check out the website for the details:
Here’s what you do:
1. Download the Mystery Shopper form or check out the online survey (works on mobile devices too!)
2. Quickly review the questions before heading out (try not to look at them while you are in the store)
3. Your feedback will help improve the efforts to encourage local shopping in the neighbourhood
4. Join us for an evening social Tuesday September 10 (mark your calendars now) and reveal yourself to all the other local mystery shoppers in the neighbourhood
Pssst! You can Mystery Shop at more than one pop-up shop location, just submit a separate form for each one please!
We drew the 5 lucky winners of the Pop-up Passport prizes. Congratulations Catherine W., Irit K., Alison M., Marika V. & Emily R. Some awesome prizes await you. Thanks to everyone who entered and thanks again to our amazing local retailers who participated:
