Dear Business Owner,


Announcing . . . FIND WALDO IN FORT KENT!


This July, our bookstore will be hosting an exciting month-long scavenger hunt to find Waldo in twenty-
five participating local businesses. The Find Waldo Local is a creative and fun way to highlight all that’s wonderful about our local indie businesses, and we hope you’ll want to join in! The plan, outlined in the attached info flyer, is sure to drive customers—both old and new—to your business while underscoring the unique character of our town, promoting our “Shop Local” message, and bolstering our shared sense of community.


As a participating business, you have little to invest in order to reap some huge returns. When discerning if this is something suited to your business, keep in mind that this activity is not limited to children. It’s designed to be a fun and engaging community activity for the young and the young at heart!


For the past seven summers, hundreds of indie bookstores have hosted successful Waldo scavenger hunts across America. The local businesses that participated were so thrilled with the results that they’ve asked for a repeat performance this July. One merchant declared, 


“We were amazed at the number of new people who had never been in our store before. Waldo-spotting definitely increased foot traffic to our store and increased awareness of the local businesses in our town.”


Please return the included registration form and your check for $15 by June 1st, 2019 if you’d like to be one of the twenty-five places where Waldo is hanging out this July. 


Please don’t hesitate to let me know  if you have any other questions about Find Waldo in FORT KENT!



All the best,
