Press Release - Customer Appreciation
It is with deep sadness and heavy hearts that the Mission Downtown Business Association announces the cancellation of this year’s annual Customer Appreciation event.
We know that this decision comes as an enormous disappointment to the community. Customer Appreciation has become the real onset celebration, marking the beginning of holiday shopping in the downtown. Our businesses and customers look forward to this event each year.
This is not a decision that the DBA board has taken lightly, Following increased and overwhelming concerns about the COVID-19 virus, as well as new restrictions and regulations outlined by Dr. Bonnie Henry, we feel that this is the responsible decision and the best way to proceed during such an unprecedented global situation.
In no way does the cancellation of such an event signify the cancellation of our downtown appreciating our beloved customers. Each and every businesses has been in constant contact with Mr. Claus, and they are as busy as Santa’s elves, decorating their shops and stocking their shelves with festive delights. They are more than delighted to welcome the community in to their establishments to take advantage of their holiday specials.
Please remember that at a time like this, it is paramount that our community takes all opportunities to shop local and support our small businesses. We thank you for your support and look forward to so many Customer Appreciation events in the future.
