Shop local this week!!
Chamber of Commerce Presents a Shop Local Initiative through December 19th
In an effort to spread Christmas cheer throughout our community and encourage residents to “shop local”, the Brady/McCulloch County Chamber of Commerce is will again be hosting a Shop Local initiative through Friday, December 19th.
Saturday, November 29th marks Small Business Saturday. Make sure you take the opportunity to #shoplocal and #shopbrady! On Monday, December 1st, the first ten people to present receipts from member businesses dated on Small Business Saturday to the Chamber office will receive a $25 AmEx gift card.
The chamber will also give away $100 cash on December 5th, December 12th, and December 19th, as well as on December 11th for Ladies’ Night Out participants. To be eligible for the giveaway, consumers must submit sales receipts from chamber member businesses totaling at least $100 collectively, and dated from the week prior to the drawing, to the chamber offices by 3pm on each drawing date. Winners will be determined by a random drawing. Every $100 spent earns one entry into the drawing, with a maximum of ten entries per week. For a complete list of eligible merchants, contact the chamber office or visit our website at www.bradytx.com.
The chamber feels this is a perfect opportunity for McCulloch County citizens to spend their shopping dollars locally during the holidays while supporting our local member businesses.
If you have any questions about this program, please contact the chamber office at (325) 597-3491 or email firstname.lastname@example.org .
