Looking to do something to support the local economy that is simple and fun? It’s easy – participate in the Buy Local – Win Big Contest! The Douglas County Chamber, Main Street Douglasville, and Main Street Villa Rica are partnering to “challenge” the community to BUY LOCAL June 1st – June 30th and in return, one lucky person will win $500. This program is also presented by media partners Chapel Hill News and Views and Villa Rica News and Views.
Here’s how you can participate. First, shop at any Chamber member business, Main Street Douglasville business, or Villa Rica Main Street business. Next, turn in your original receipt at the Douglas County Chamber, Douglasville City Hall or Main Street Villa Rica office between 9 a.m. and 5 p.m., Monday thru Friday until June 30th. There is no limit to the number of receipts you can turn in, and no minimum purchase is required. Finally, watch the Douglas County Chamber Facebook page for the drawing on July 2nd at 4 p.m. to see if your receipt is drawn. The winning participant will receive $500 and the participating business will receive $250.
“The Chamber believes in the importance of keeping tax dollars local so we are excited to offer the Buy Local – Win Big Contest this summer,” Douglas County Chamber President and CEO Sara Ray stated. “Nearly 80% of our Chamber members are small businesses of ten employees or less, and it is so important to support these businesses in our community. We hope many residents will participate!”
