Still Time to Win Pizza and Movie Passes

bizflower.jpgThere are still a few days left to throw your name in the hat to win FOUR movie passes to any Malco Theater location as well as a piping hot Guido’s Pizza gift certificate to go with it. (And you can use the gift certificate at any of the Guido’s locations, too.)

Use the pizza and movie passes for a double date with another couple, a fun girls’ night out, or take the kids out for pizza and a show. It’s up to you.

To enter the drawing, we’re asking you to help us build our new “Moms’ Choice Business Directory,” by posting a comment or sending us an e-mail listing a few of your favorite mom-friendly businesses in the area — the ones that have earned your approval and satisfaction.

We’ll also give away 6 of our new t-shirts to 6 readers, drawn at random.

Often, we get e-mails from moms who are new to Northwest Arkansas who are searching for a certain item or service but don’t know where to look. Sometimes they’re searching for a bakery in Bentonville that can make a Transformer birthday cake, or a place where they can find a variety of backyard swing sets. Even moms who have lived in NWA for years can benefit from a business directory made up of companies recommended by fellow moms. That’s why we’re building the directory and asking for your input.

We began this giveaway on Monday, and we’ve already received some great feedback. To read the comments already posted by your fellow moms, click HERE.


Here’s a list of some of the categories we’re looking for, but you can nominate businesses that don’t fall into these categories as well:

  • bakeries
  • gift stores
  • carpet cleaners
  • restaurants
  • dry cleaners
  • eye doctors
  • furniture stores
  • chiropractors
  • birthday party places
  • handymen services
  • painters
  • realtors
  • travel agents
  • veterinarians
  • maternity shops
  • baby/kid furniture stores
  • consignment shops
  • child care

There will be lots of winners on this giveaway, so start commenting or e-mailing asap, and we’ll reveal our business directory within the next few months.

We hope it will be a big help to moms and businesses in our area. Thanks in advance for your suggestions!
