NEW MOVER WELCOME PACKET NEW!
We are pleased to partner with Community Hospitality to welcome all new movers to our town, bringing gifts and coupons from our local businesses.
New Mover Welcome Packets are a nice touch for new residents experiencing our area for the first time and an excellent way to get your business name in their hands first.
People moving into a new area fall into two categories — those who want to try all the new spots and those who are just looking for a place to call home — a favorite restaurant, a trusted salon, a friendly service provider, etc. Either way your business would be well served to reach out to Kearney’s newest citizens and provide a warm welcome.
