Adventure Advertising gives away gift cards

Mar 19, 2020

Rockport — During the current times that are tough on all people and businesses, one way to help local restaurants and shops is to buy gift cards now that can be used at a later date. Adventure Advertising announced through Facebook today that it had purchased 12 gift cards from local area businesses and that it is giving them away.

As recent events put more and more strain on companies and many have been forced to close, this was Adventure’s way of paying it forward.

“Local companies are the heart of our communities. We can only do a little bit, as we’re affected by these tough times just like everyone else, but I hope that our small purchase from just these few companies — and giving the gift cards away — brings more attention to supporting local businesses. We’re all in this together and we want to help in any way we can,” said Dale Landrith, co-owner of Adventure Advertising.

Adventure bought $25 gift cards from Maritime Farms, Seasons Downeast Designs, Rankin’s Hardware, Plants Unlimited, Maine Sport, Planet Toys, Boynton-Mckay, Camden Deli, Graffam Bros. Seafood, Loyal Biscuit, Café Miranda, and The Market Basket.

The gift cards will be given away on March 31 through a free sweepstakes that they set up to raise awareness of purchasing local. Participants can enter the sweepstakes at adventure29.com/giveaway/support-our-local-businesses-sweepstakes.

While I fully support this idea, Adventure Advertising should allow everyone the opportunity to "opt" out of receiving any further communication from them.
