Summerland businesses purchase corporate memberships in museum drive

Museum society offering 50 per cent discount on corporate memberships until end of year

The Summerland Museum and Archives Society has been offering a 50 per cent discount on annual corporate memberships with hopes of making membership viable for hard-hit local businesses.

Two of the first businesses to get on board were SASS Boutique and McBain Insurance. Another six businesses have since joined the campaign. They are CK Inc., Heart Star Music, Luxe Valley Digital, Summerland Reflexology, Millionaires’ Row Cider Co. and Summerland Timber Mart.

Businesses which purchase memberships before the end of the year will be featured in a new self-guided tour brochure that encourages locals and visitors to support Summerland businesses.

Some businesses are going an extra step by becoming “satellite museums” and displaying a carefully selected Summerland artifact. SASS Boutique has put up a poster highlighting a dress from the Museum Collection sewn by Summerland’s Dorothy Fisher.

Annual Corporate Memberships are on sale for 50 per cent off until Dec. 31. They are valid for one calendar year after purchase. Perks of corporate membership include recognition on the museum’s website and newsletters, discounted gift shop and event ticket prices, a complimentary behind-the-scenes tour of the museum and archives, and more. For more information, call 250-494-9395 or email info@summerlandmuseum.org.
