Downtown Dartmouth 3/65


Take the Pledge to Buy Local this Holiday Season

The pandemic has hurt our beloved small businesses, and now they need our support more than ever. Downtown Dartmouth 3/65 is an initiative to encourage individuals to shop local and support their favourite downtown Dartmouth businesses over the holiday season. How it works is simple; choose your favorite 3 local businesses and spend $65 (or what you are able) at each.


Take the pledge to support local businesses this holiday season with Downtown Dartmouth 3/65! 


3/65 Social Media Contest

No way! Over the course of four weeks, four lucky individuals will win a $65 gift card to the downtown Dartmouth business of their choice. To enter, post a photo at three of your favourite downtown Dartmouth businesses with the hashtag #DowntownDartmouth365 to be entered to win.


This contest will run on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter. This initiative will run November 17 to December 17 with a winner announced on each Friday.
