Due to your overwhelmingly positive response to this program, the MBA Board decided to expand and, as of April 2017, we will mail a Welcome Bag to all new Montgomery residents every month. Each reusable shopping bag contains a letter explaining the importance and benefits of shopping local and the flyers of businesses that choose to participate in the Welcome Bag program.
The Township has informed us that, on average, there are 40 to 50 new residents per month. They expect us to send out 500 Welcome Bags per year! This great opportunity to reach out to new residents is included in your membership fees.
How to Participate
Get Your Promotion Materials in the Welcome Bag!
This program is available to all members in good standing, that is, with 2017 membership dues paid in full. You can pay online.
We need at least 200 pieces of your literature (one page, maxium 8.5 x 11) to start. Many businesses choose to offer a special promotion for new residents, but that is not required. We will contact you when we need additional materials, as the bags are distributed.
Drop your materials off to James Danner’s business: Red Barn Printing, 30 Vreeland Drive, Skillman, NJ 08558. Your literature can be dropped off Monday – Friday between 10 AM and 4 PM.
Please place your materials in a secure, durable package that is clearly labeled with your business name, your name, and contact information, including phone & email address.
Please remember the MBA Board is all volunteer. This is a big undertaking and we are happy to do it, but it is your responsibility to provide your own materials.
If you have any further questions about the program, please email us.
This program will broaden our reach to the Montgomery Community, add value to your MBA membership, and increase local commerce in Montgomery. Shop Local Montgomery!
