WILMINGTON, MA — As of January 1st, 2017, the Wilmington Chamber of Commerce officially expanded into Tewksbury creating a bi-town chamber now known as The Wilmington/Tewksbury Chamber of Commerce. Over the past 7 months, Chamber membership has grown at a rapid rate and local business owners are taking advantage of the many advertising and networking opportunities provided to help grow their business.
One program that benefits both business members and local residents is their “Welcome to our Community” Gift Bags. Provided to Wilmington new residents for many years, gift bags are now available to new residents moving into Tewksbury as of July 1st.
How the program works:
- Chamber business members provide promotional gifts, brochures/coupons for insertion into the Chamber’s Welcome Bags. It is a targeted, low-cost advertising opportunity exclusive to members. Program participation gives Chamber members an advantage over their competitors by being the first to introduce their products/services to potentially 500 new homeowners per year.
- Custom postcards are mailed each month by the Chamber to new homeowners inviting them to pick up their Welcome Bag at any of the following locations:
- Wilmington or Tewksbury Town Hall
- Wilmington or Tewksbury Library
- Wilmington/Tewksbury Chamber of Commerce Office
“New homeowners are eager to establish relationships with business and professionals in their community. They become loyal customers and are valuable to our business community. It encourages “Buy Local” spending which is a win for all”, says Nancy Vallee, Wilmington/Tewksbury Chamber of Commerce Executive Director.
“New residents love getting these bags! Not only are they filled with lots of cool stuff & helpful information, it makes them feel welcome and excited to be a part of a caring community”, adds Dan Esdale, Chamber President.
In addition, new Tewksbury residents will be invited to an annual Welcome Reception. Proven successful in Wilmington, the Chamber has partnered with the Tewksbury Library to host the first Welcome Reception on Monday, October 23rd. The Wilmington Welcome Reception is scheduled for Monday, October 16th at the Wilmington Memorial Library. New residents can come to learn more about their community and meet & mingle with town department and non-profit representatives as well as other new residents. They may pick up their “Welcome to Our Community” Gift Bags at this event as well.
