Manzanita Beach Getaway has started a new program to encourage guests to shop local. Eighteen businesses in the Manzanita area are participating. Manzanita Beach Getaway hopes to gain repeat guests from this program and to help other small businesses in the process.
Manzanita Beach Getaway leaves guests a card and list of the group’s deals for every reservation. When the guests enter their rental home, they are surprised with the loyalty cards. The discount program was launched in December. Guests must present their loyalty card to receive a discount at participating businesses.
Kasey Schuermyer, of Manzanita Beach Getaway, said owner Danielle Johnson has had the idea of this loyalty program for years.
“At my interview nearly three years ago, she expressed interest that she wanted an employee to spearhead the project,” Schuermyer said.
“As my position with the company changed from taking reservations to marketing, I was able to step out of the office, approach each business in Manzanita and offer them a way to expand their clientele,” Schuermyer added. “With the idea mainly being to help bring revenue to those shops during the winter off-season, when things are slow, the gratitude we received from the businesses was significant.”
With COVID-19, Schuermyer said the program has kicked off at the right time. She reconnected with businesses, making sure they were able to offer discounts.
“Shopping local is the way to go,” Schuermyer said. “Local business owners know you and you know them. They will remember your family each year and you are supporting the charming community of Manzanita.”
