National Curb Appeal Campaign is in Full Swing

I have some exciting news for our brand! Thursday, May 30, we kicked off a three-month multi-brand campaign in the US promoting The Grounds Guys and Five Star Painting, entitled “Enhance Your Curb Appeal”. This multi-brand campaign will drive multi-brand customers by offering an easy way to achieve curb appeal for all Neighborly customers, while enticing them with a special offer of $100 off painting projects over $1000 and/or $50 off landscape services over $500. Click the image below to read more:
