The Burnside Merchant

April 4th was a very proud day for us at Shop the Shore Publications as we launch a brand-new business to business advertising magazine filling a hole in the marketplace that other publishers could not.  We are a local, growing business focusing on helping local business build their awareness in the marketplace.

Businesses in Burnside need a quality, cost effective venue to deliver their message to the park, highlighting all the awesome products and services that are provided right here in Dartmouth.  The Burnside Merchant is that venue with a proven approach to building business visibility .

Our business started over 30 years ago as a sort of co-operative amongst small businesses on the Eastern Shore to get their message out with monthly frequency at a manageable cost level, directly mailed to everyone in the area.  Serving businesses large and small, we pride ourselves on our simple full service approach making quality print advertising available to every company; helping frame ideas, designing the ads, and then getting the message to market. We can bring your ideas to life from zero to sixty with a simple phone call or email and exchange of ideas, then we do the rest.

This is a great time of year as we all put our plans and budgets in place for the coming year.  Don’t miss this fantastic opportunity to reach everyone in the Burnside and surrounding area for as low as $55 a month all-in.  We will take great pride in watching your business grow. Let us help you drive customers to your store, website, or service hassle free.
