The 2011 Middleborough Holiday Shopping Guide was mailed out this week; did you receive your copy in the mail? If so, then hopefully you saw our advertisement on the third page.
You may have noticed a square barcode in the corner of our advertisement and wondered what it is:
“A QR code (abbreviated from Quick Response code) is a type of matrix barcode (or two-dimensional code) first designed for the automotive industry. More recently, the system has become popular outside of the industry due to its fast readability and comparatively large storage capacity. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded can be made up of any kind of data. (Source: Wikipedia.org)”
In the case of our QR code, it takes you to a very special offer for your holiday shopping convenience. To access the information embedded in the code, you will need a smartphone with a camera, Internet access and a QR code reader app (most of which are free to download from an app store).
If you cannot get the QR code in our advertisement to scan, then you can use your phone’s QR code reader to scan the QR code below. Scan the code, then enter the password that is located in the holiday shopping guide. Once entered, you will be eligible to take advantage of our limited-time holiday special.
We are just one of many local businesses that advertised in this year’s Holiday Shopping Guide. Many of the advertisers have special offers just for the recipients of this mailing. So check your mailbox, flip through the guide and then get shopping.
