Erin Mills Town Centre is hosting a competition that will allow entrepreneurs, small business owners and startups in Mississauga to expose their brand to consumers flooding the mall during the busy holiday season.

The Mind Your Own Business contest will provide three winners a chance to set up shop at one kiosk at the mall to showcase their product, service or business ideas during November and December.

“We feel it’s important to support the growth of small businesses and entrepreneurs in the community,” said mall marketing director Francesca Bourre. “We are also hoping to discover new and unique retail experiences that we can offer to our shoppers.”

First place winners will be able to showcase their product or service at the kiosk for the whole month of December, and second and third place winners can set up shop for two weeks at a time in November.

First, second and third place winners will be selected based on their business proposal submissions.

Submissions for the contest are currently being accepted by Erin Mills Town Centre until Sept. 10.
