Last summer, momstown was over the moon with two chapters opening in August in Durham. With high hopes, momstown Whitby-Ajax and momstown Oshawa-Port Perry celebrated with a big launch party at Oshawa Place Mall in September 2010.
One year later, we're disappointed with the current results of the 2 chapters. Small but active communities have been created but our current owners have been unable to stay and grow the businesses into those high hopes. Both former owners, Nicole and Nancy, would agree the territories are ripe for a momstown business with the right, focused owners.
These two chapters will remain open FOR SALE for two more weeks until September 15th. The purchase prize is $3,000 per territory which comes as a complete business with website, business training, our strong momstown brand and network, established social media accounts, advertising/ sponsorship inventory, an active community of members and a subscription list of approximately 400 local families each. Our business model is unique and is working for 16 other momstown chapter across Canada. For more information, please see the licensing info here.
momstown would like to redivide the territories into a more traditional Durham split to Pickering-Ajax & Whitby-Oshawa but this is up for discussion.
If suitable buyers have not been found by September 15th, momstown will be closing both businesses. To protect our integrity and brand, membership fees will be returned at a pro-rated cost directly to active members and any outstanding advertising fees returned or transferred.
In the interim 2 weeks, our memberships are FREE and OPEN for all to check out and register. Our events with momstown Whitby are OPEN and inclusive of all. Anyone whose membership is due to expire is welcome to extend it for free.
This is a tough decision to make on behalf of the momstown company, but we are committed to delivering a consistent level of service, regular events based on our curriculum to our members and without a owners/operators in Durham, we are unable to offer that. We hope to find committed individuals by the 15th. Please pass this opportunity along to any aspiring mom entrepreneurs.
If you have questions or concerns about the sale or pending closure, please reach out to myself or our momstown Team Leader Leanne at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Thank-you for your patience and support as we navigate through the coming weeks.
