The Steinbach Chamber of Commerce is once again encouraging businesses to get behind the Summer in the City Festival by taking part in the Sales in the City promotion.
This year, participating businesses will be easily identified by a bright red banner that will be flying across the city.
Community Development Committee Chair Joel Hartung is looking forward to this year’s event.
“This is a great way for the business community to get behind the festival and to show our support for the community of Steinbach,” stated Hartung. “Festival goers will also be able to find several of these participating businesses on the street during the city’s ever growing festival on June 15 & 16.”
Last years’ “Sales in the City” proved to be a huge success. The promotion formerly known as “Sidewalk Sale Days” went through a rebranding process last spring to breathe new life into a long standing community tradition. A total of 45 businesses participated in the event; more than double the number of merchants that participated in sidewalk sale days the year before.
Sales in the City will run one day longer than the festival from June 14-16 and will include businesses from all across Steinbach. Businesses wishing to get involved with the promotion should contact the Steinbach Chamber of Commerce by calling 326-9566.
Community Development Committee Members (L to R) Keith Unger, Joel Hartung, & Kyla Murray are getting ready for the second annual Sales in the City.
