Say “Hi!” to 5!

I am forever grateful for each and everyone of you who come in to Circare regularly.  You make it possible for me to make a living doing something I love AND make it so much fun!  But  how many of my neighboring businesses here in downtown St Clair Shores do you also know?  Have you wondered into Comfortably Yours and discovered their feel good garments and gifts?  Relied on Sam’s expertise at Vitamin Village to find the best quality supplements?  Had a delicious (and friendly) lunch with Karen and Jack at Caffe Far Bella?  We have a wonderful rich variety of great businesses here in our one small block!  And now is the absolutely perfect time to stop by a few of them, say “Hi!”, see what they’re all about and– just possibly— WIN $100!

That’s right- we 9 Mack Merchants are asking you to come down sometime between Thursday, October 17th and Saturday, October 26th.  Pick up a “Hi! 5” sheet at any of the businesses sporting a “hand” sign in their window (or look for the ‘Hi! 5″ page in the SCS Sentinel, GP Times, or Eastsider 10/17/13 newspapers).  Then stop by at least 5 of the participating businesses, getting a sticker at each one.  Collect 5 stickers and you will be entered into a drawing for 1 of 5 separate $100 cash prizes!  If you enjoy exploring our little downtown and discovering new favorite shops, by all means don’t stop.  Collect 10 stickers and we’ll give you not 2 but 3 chances to Win!

Circare just celebrated our 26th anniversary and we’re really proud about that.   But we’re still actually one of the younger shops here at 9 & Mack.  Roy O’Brien Ford opened in 1946!  Connie’s Children’s Shop is 2nd generation.  Party Adventure, Jan & Jim’s Hallmark, Gilboe & Associates, all of them were here before us.  To have survived-and thrived- through all these years, they must be doing something (lots of somethings) really right.  Come check them out.  And who knows?  It could be the easiest $100 you’ll ever win!

If you have questions, or would like to learn more about our “Hi! 5” event, give us a call @ 586 771-8510.  Better yet, stop by and say “Hi!”
