Membership has Privileges

Are you a member of Northeast Shores?

Would you like to be able to take advantage of Neighborhood Specials?
Did you know that when Northeast Shores applies for grant money we have to provide out list of members?

Would you like to help increase our chances of getting grant money to North Shore Collinwood?

With the competition for funding greater than ever our membership list could be the difference between our neighborhood getting grant money or not. In an effort to increase our membership, we are offering our Members Have Privileges card. Membership is half price if you join right now, which means a resident pays $7.50, seniors pay $5.00 and businesses pay $30.00. When you join Northeast Shores you will receive a key tag card that you can present at the local merchant who is offering the monthly special. You will be able to take advantage of the special all month long.

If you are a merchant in North Shore Collinwood you can become a member and be the merchant of the month special. You offer a special that will be available all month long to ONLY the members of Northeast Shores who present their member key tag. We provide the marketing materials. We will send a postcard out to the members letting them know you are the merchant of the month. We will give you posters to display in your business, along with table tents to put on your tables or counters.

As you can tell, this a win-win situation for all of North Shore Collinwood. You will be shopping local, getting a discount and helping this neighborhood get much needed grant money, so please call 216-481-7660 and ask for your membership application or stop in at Northeast Shores Development Corp at 317 East 156th St and pick one up.
