Bag of Downtown Goodies


The NDDC is launching another Retail Initiative. For Parent and Family Weekends at St. Olaf and Carleton Colleges, we’re going to distribute bags full of goodies from downtown.

We’ve had iniitial discussions with a few retailers and the ideas include pens, refrigerator magnets, chip clips, measuring tapes, coupon books, brochures and candy bars. Think of the State Fair but a little hipper.

Here’s the trick; time is tight. We need to get everything in to the NDDC office by Wednesday, September 28th. We’ll stuff the bags on Thursday the 29th for distribution at St. Olaf on Saturday, October 1st and Carleton on Satruday, October 15th.

We’re really hoping that you’ll participate. The more we get stuffed in the bags, the more likely that the parents and families will say, “Let’s go downtown”.

Any comments or questions, call Ross at the NDDC office, 663-0319.
