As you may have seen on Facebook, read in the Alpena News or heard on the radio, we’re collaborating with twenty downtown merchants to host Flannel Fun Night this Thursday from 5:00 pm to 8:00 pm! If you haven’t already, mark your calendars and get your favorite flannel outfit ready for this cozy night of downtown shopping.
Each shop will have their own specials, deals, sales, giveaways and more! In addition to that, we’ll also be giving away a collaborative Downtown Prize Basket valued at over $500 and featuring a product or service from each participating business. One person will take home this awesome basket of goodies!
But how do you enter to win? By visiting and shopping at the participating businesses downtown. Those attending Flannel Fun Night will be able to fill out an entry form to win the prize basket at each participating business. 1 business visited = 1 entry to win. So the more businesses you visit, the more chances you have to win this amazing basket!
