To celebrate the businesses who are part of the Co-op's Shop South Philly discount program and thank them for their great support over the last couple years, we want to encourage our members to take advantage of these discounts and specials by shopping or dining at the Shop South Philly businesses. We also want to give everyone a chance to have a little fun and win great prizes while doing so!
Starting November 18 and running through December 29, we invite you to take a picture that represents you shopping at, eating at or using one of these businesses. The rules are very loose on what has to be in the picture.
Get your cell phone or camera and (for example)...
- Take a picture of yourself and/or others in front of or in a business or attraction like Bartram's Garden, the Bottle Shop, Living Waters Massage, or Occasionette...
- Or a picture of something that represents the business or service - a Bennett Compost bucket, a car from Enterprise CarShare or Zipcar or Uber, a Wash Cycle bike whizzing by (or a picture of yourself with one of the riders), or your dog being walked by Monster Minders...
- Or, of course, take a picture of a great meal or snack from Breezy's Cafe, Black n Brew, Grindcore House, or Lucky Old Souls (we all take pictures of our food anyway, right?)...
Share the picture on Instagram, Twitter or Facebook (and here's the important part) with the hashtag #shopsouthphilly. That way, we'll be able to search for all the pictures easily. You also should also include the name of the business. If you know the Facebook name, Twitter handle or Instagram name of the business link to that. Two of our Co-op volunteers were out last Sunday at Breezy's Cafe and snapped this picture of their great brunch on Instagram:
Each week we'll pick one picture to win a great bunch of prizes that includes... wait for it... a South Philly Food Co-op coffee mug, all packaged in a cool little canvas South Philly Food Co-op bag from Occasionette.
On Monday, December 30th, we'll post all six weekly winners plus a few of our other favorites on our Facebook, Twitter and Instagram pages and let everyone vote with their Likes, Hearts, Retweets, Stars, Comments and whatever else constitutes some kind of engagement with the picture. The highest vote getter by midnight on Sunday, January 5th will get our Grand Prize... which has yet to be determined but will be awesome.
This holiday season, whether you're out shopping for gifts, taking some time to go out and have some fun, or looking to use services from car sharing to composting, dog walking to baby birthing, please consider on of the businesses that have been supporting the South Philly Food Co-op. And if you're not a member-owner of the Co-op yet, consider joining to take advantage of these great offers.
On November 18th... let the #SHOPSOUTHPHILLY picture taking BEGIN!
