Thoughts are turning to the Easter Holidays so every visitor and stall holder at the market today got a free entry into a draw to win a lovely selection of Easter chocs from Devonport Chocolates, just around the corner from the Market on Wynyard Street.
The lucky winner was a customer who had travelled from Glenfield to visit the Market today - so I'll be dropping their prize up to them on Tuesday.
It was also interesting, today, to use the draw tickets as a way of asking a couple of questions of our customers - I'm pleased to say that none of the draw participants ticked the 'no' box in answer to the question "Are you enjoying the Market today?" - phew - it's good to know that people who come along really enjoy the experience.
It was also interesting to discover that roughly 50% of Market customers live in Devonport and 50% elsewhere - and that those who travelled from outside of Devonport, mostly heard about the Market via Eventfinda; although replies stating they have seen our Facebook page were also significant too. All food for thought when planning future marketing.
Looking forward to the May Market - the timing is fab as 14th May is not only the next Market, but also Mothers' Day in NZ. That gives lots of reasons to bring Mums down to Devonport to visit the Market and be treated ... or for anyone else to come down and be treated too .. share the love I say!!
Hope to see you at the next Market on 14th May.
