Elf on the Shelf comes to Downtown Brampton
Meet Thomas! Our Downtown Brampton, elf on the shelf. In our continuous efforts to promote our downtown businesses - Thomas will be part of our social media promotion. Similar to Scare in the Square, Thomas will be hiding in specific businesses and children will be going around to participating businesses to find him. Each participating business will be required to give out candy canes to children visiting your locations. When the family finds Thomas, they will be entered in a draw for a gift card to a local downtown business. We are looking for participating businesses at this time, this will be a great way to bring families into your shop starting on November 25. If you would like to join the Elf hunt, email email@example.com
