WIN BIG with the Downtown DIG!

Exciting news! The Downtown Barrie Business Association (BIA) wants to thank everyone who has continued to support our local businesses during the Dunlop Streetscape Project. As a way to encourage shoppers to keep it up during Phase 1A construction (Dunlop St between Poyntz St and Owen St), we have put together an exciting new contest!

From Tuesday, October 1st until Sunday, November 10th, 2019, shop at select Phase 1A businesses (those located along or just behind Dunlop Street between Poyntz Street and Owen Street) for a chance to WIN BIG! With each purchase, shoppers are invited to enter a ballot into a contest that three winners will be drawn from. The winning prize packages will consist of a selection of goodies and gift certificates from select Phase 1A businesses.

First Prize: a prize package worth $2500.00

Second Prize: a prize package worth $1000.00

Third Prize: a prize package worth $500.00

The funding for this contest resulted from an anonymous donor and massive supporter of our incredible downtown community. This donor wanted to contribute to building excitement about the project and the businesses involved in Phase 1A and gifted the funds to do so. We thank them wholeheartedly.

#WeDigDowntown and we know you do too!
