All you need to do is guess how many transactions we will do by 8pm on the 24th January and post your guess in the comments below or in the shop. Keep reading for some clues!
The 24th of January is a day of significant milestones for us as shopkeepers and social entrepreneurs, so we are going to be celebrating all day in the shop because we have some exciting progress to share with our customers.
On this week last year we announced our intention to buy the shop, by crowdfunding peer to peer loans from local people, as a social investment for the long term benefit of the community. On the 24th of January 2016 we received the first of over 300 pledges, it was the start of £500,000 of funding to date from local people and the first step towards saving the shop.
It will also be our four month anniversary of owning and running the village shop, it has become a very special venture that has made remarkable unprecedented progress and exceeded our expectations and we have exciting plans for its rapid growth in 2017.
To help you make a good guess – at 3 months we had done 20,000 transactions and yesterday we hit 25,000! Only one guess per person and if more than one person guesses the right answer the winner will be the first person who guessed correctly.
You can enter the competition even if you don’t live nearby, you can spend the voucher on a hamper of Cornish produce or flowers and we will post them to you.
To enter either post a comment on our facebook post (click the image below) or fill the form out in the shop.
Good luck everyone!
