It is hard to believe that it has just been a year since Sandra Pilkington took over True Scarlette. As many of you know True Scarlette is one of the best places North of 7 for aesthetics and tanning.
On Friday, March 11 Sandra held her 1 year anniversary and to show her clients appreciation for the support they have given over the last year she reached out to other businesses in the area to see if they would be interested in donating door prizes.
The response was phenomenal and I have to say I was impressed by each donation. The grande prize was a night at the Teddy Bear Bed and Breakfast, dinner for 2 at the Granite and Bancroft Taxi donated the ride to and from the Granite. Other business that also donated was one of our gems here The Old Tin Shed, The “Hair”itage House, and Ambient Glow. Uvalux who is one of Sandra’s suppliers also donated a wealth of tanning products and gift basket to be given away.
As Sandra spoke to both Bancroft This Week and Mary Kavanagh town councillor and with the BBIA she explained that although a year of up and downs, it has mostly been up. By expanding products and services after listening to her existing cliental she has been able to grow the business and looks forward to keep doing so in the coming years.
The winners of the prizes are being drawn this coming Monday morning and I’ll update you with the winners then.
There is an old saying that it takes a village to raise a child….I think this could be adopted to small rural businesses in supporting each others milestones. Just food for thought.
