Home of Amazon Headquarters? (Possibly)… Markham Turns To Bold Ad Campaign

A southern Ontario city has launched a bright new campaign to help convince Amazon to set up its new North American headquarters there.

Markham has erected orange signs that read in bold black letters “Home of Amazon HQ2” – with the word “possible” in front in smaller light grey writing.

A tweet from the city says the signs are popping up all over Markham, and implores Amazon to “#chooseMarkham.”

Markham is one of 10 cities that joined with Toronto to bid for the second Amazon headquarters, and the region is the only Canadian bid still in the running.
