WINTHROP - This winter numerous Winthrop business owners worked together to promote and advertise their services and products by developing a business card brochure to hand out.
This brochure is being developed as a way for the businesses to network and encourage customers to Shop Winthrop.
The businesses contributed money that would cover printing costs, give out four $100 cash awards along with two gift certificates from Goose Landing, a free oil change from B & P Auto, a brick of eight-year-old Cheddar Cheese from Elliotts Farm & Home Supply, and four Living Cookbook CDs from Radium Technology of Winthrop.
The cash and prizes were offered as a way to increase foot traffic in a slow economy.
The following are the entrants who won the prizes;
$100: Gloria Sullivan, Colby Jenkinson, Rick Moody, Morey Hazelton.
