Wellness and Wealth by Choice
Breast Cancer Awareness Month – Wellness & Wealth by Choice, in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month, is offering a special opportunity to all Chamber Affinity Customers. Research has proven that chlorine is a toxic chemical known to increase the risk of cancer cell growth. By reducing exposure to chlorine, logic would say the risk of cancer is reduced. Our greatest source of chlorine is found in the tap water that most of us use for drinking and bathing.
As the special opportunity this month, we are offering an additional 5% discount (15% total) off the retail price on the PIMAG WATERFALL and the PIMAG MICROJET SHOWER SYSTEMS. Reduce the amount of chlorine you and your family come in contact with daily!
# 1384….PIMAG WATERFALL ….retail cost $385
#14662…MICROJET WALL- MOUNT…retail cost $115
#1466…..MICROJET HAND HELD……….retail cost $140

When Do You Know Your IT is Obsolete?
The Windows XP computer you bought in late 2001 still seems to work fine. Sure, it takes 15 minutes to fully boot up in the morning, but that’s ok. It gives you time to get a cup of coffee! And your Office 2003 programs are still functional even though they lack the advanced features of more current versions. Why think about upgrading?
Whether you’re a business owner or IT pro, you will want to be part of this conversation. Simplex-IT’s popular monthly Lunchinars are always free, open to all and focused on sharing information. And, as a bonus, we will be awarding a door prize of valuable software (courtesy of our Partner, Microsoft). Free food AND free software – how awesome is that?

City of Cuyahoga Falls
Announcing a unique advertising opportunity offered by the City of Cuyahoga Falls. An exciting, new program is coming to Cuyahoga Falls that offers a unique advertising opportunity to area businesses. The First-Time Homeowner Welcome Program is an incentive program created in an effort to increase the number of owner-occupied homes in Cuyahoga Falls. The number of houses currently sold in the City average approximately 250 per year. Of those, a portion are purchased as rentals,rehab turn-arounds, or bank buy-backs. The City would like to see most, if not all, of that portion converted into owner-occupied housing. When a resident signs up for City utilities, they will receive a welcome packet containing important City-related information. If that resident qualifies as a first-time City homeowner, their packet will also contain significant cost-saving incentive offers provided by participating businesses. The City will also be a participant with its incentive offer consisting of almost $500 in free memberships, rental discounts and BOGO offers. In order to receive a welcome packet, first-time home buyers must meet two conditions: (1) they must sign an agreement committing to live in the home they are purchasing for a minimum of two years; and (2) they must be either relocating to Cuyahoga Falls from another community, or a current resident purchasing their first home in the City. In addition to welcoming the first-time home buyer to Cuyahoga Falls, the packet will be a useful tool for realtors to help increase their sales of owner-occupied homes. Each incentive offer will have a quantifiable dollar value contributing to a total packet value. The realtor can then represent to the buyer “purchase and live in a home in Cuyahoga Falls, and you will receive $XXX in valuable discounts.”
Participation Requirements. Any business may participate.
- Incentive offers must be quantifiable. There needs to be a specific dollar value in order to calculate the total incentive value of the packet.
- Incentive offers must be in pdf format and emailed to the City.
- Unless otherwise requested by the business, incentives will expireone year from the date the homeowner receives a packet.
- The versatility of pdf will allow City staff to easily print a one-year expiration date on the document.
- Incentive offers will remain part of the program unless the City receives written notification from the business withdrawing from participation. If an offer is withdrawn, it would be appreciated (but not required) if the business would continue to honor any outstanding offers distributed prior to the withdrawal.
Benefits of Participating
- No postage. There is nothing to mail.
- No printing cost. When a new homeowner signs up for utilities, the City will print the offers and insert them into the welcome packet.
- The cost for a business to participate is zero unless and until the new homeowner redeems the incentive offer provided by the business.
- This is an advertising opportunity for a business to be one of the first to introduce itself to individuals new to the area.
- Your business would be one of the first to reach out and welcome the new homeowner.
Please contact us with any questions you may have. If you are interested in participating, please email your incentive offer and reference “Welcome Packet” in the subject line. Thank you! City of Cuyahoga Falls – Don Walters, Mayor. 2310 Second Street, Cuyahoga Falls, OH 44221 (330) 971-8200 email@example.com
