Sturbridge, MA – The Chamber of Central Mass South, the leading advocate for local business, is incredibly pleased to announce a new contest designed to incentivize holiday shoppers to keep it local this season. Shop at Member businesses of the Chamber of Central Mass South between November 1 and December 15 and earn chances to win cash and valuable prizes, including a grand prize of $500!
“It is more important than ever that we spend our dollars where they will do the most good, at neighborhood businesses in our local towns,” said Chamber Executive Director Alexandra McNitt. “With the ‘Shop Local for the Holidays and Win’ contest, we’ve created a fun and engaging way to keep it local this holiday season.”
Keep it local and keep it simple are the themes of the contest. Here’s how to get involved and earn your chance at some extra holiday goodness. Visit www.cmschamber.org and click on the Shop Local for the Holidays banner to read the official rules, download the entry form, and view over 70 participating businesses. Bring the entry form with you as you shop and note all the businesses from which you made a purchase along with the amount spent. Then, take at least one selfie of you and/or your crew shopping at one of these fine establishments. Once you have made purchases from six of the participating businesses and taken your selfie, mail, email or drop off your completed entry form and photo at the Chamber office at 46 Hall Road in Sturbridge by noon on December 16. You can enter more than once as long as you are making 6 different and original purchases per entry. The winners will be drawn and announced on Thursday, December 17.
The participating businesses include shops, dining establishments, service providers, as well as attractions and experiences located throughout the 12 towns served by the Chamber of Central Mass South. The Chamber is extremely grateful to the ‘Shop Local for The Holidays and Win’ contest sponsor, Cornerstone Bank, for their generous support of this effort.
