LOCO Love Letters

LOCO Love Letters

How does this work?

Easy. Pen a quick love letter using the form below, and you’ll be entered to win one of the great prizes listed to the right (more prize info below.). Contest ends March 6, and winners will be contacted by email.

Can I enter more than once?

Yes, let your love loose! The more love you give, the more entries you receive (to a maximum of five entries.)

Why are we doing this? 

Because The Tyee, LOCO BC, and Vancity all believe that locally owned, independent businesses are the engine that drives a resilient, creative economy.  And we know that building the kind of business that customers come to trust and love is no easy task.  So get going - show ‘em some love!
