Uxbridge BIA Video Project 2017

We're making a video to draw more customers to Uxbridge businesses!

The Uxbridge BIA is working with Take Root Creative to make a promotional video, and we want to show off as many of our great businesses as possible!

We'll need 20-45 minutes with your business to take video. You won't need to prepare anything, or prepare to speak on camera. 

Please contact leo@takerootcreative.com to schedule your shooting time. We'll need to hear from you by March 1st to guarantee your spot in the video.

We plan to feature this video on ours and other Township websites, Tourism websites, and have it promoted on Facebook. Our video concept is: The Uxbridge BIA is open around the clock. From the time the ovens start in the morning to make fresh bread, to the time the last restaurant closes its doors for the night. The day is filled with creation, opportunities and interactions with the local community. As visitors discover Uxbridge they quickly learn that we are a hard working, inclusive and vibrant community filled with a number of businesses and people who are "Uxbridge".

With this video we'll tell a story of the Uxbridge business community, showcasing all that people can do, see, eat, drink, make, and buy in the BIA!

About Shop Uxbridge

Shop Uxbridge is a BIA-wide promotion that encourages local shopping, and rewards residents for visiting businesses in Uxbridge!

Boxes and information will be distributed by the BIA to participating businesses in the days leading up to November 26th.

Ballots will not be picked up for the early bird draw. Instead, BIA Directors will draw the name out of a box containing all participating businesses, and the BIA will then visit that business to draw an early bird winner from their box.

Want to participate? Let us know! Call 289-314-2550 or email businessfacilitator@uxbridgebia.ca to sign up!

Local Businesses Support the Uxbridge Care-a-van!

Purchase a donor card for $1 at participating locations, donate non-perishable food items or donate online to support the Uxbridge Loaves & Fishes Food Bank.

See the Uxbridge Care-a-van website at Careavan.ca for a detailed list of drop-off locations and Food Drive dates.
