Shop Local and Win This Holiday Season

Nov 17, 2017

Shop local this holiday season! Our Grow Peoria County campaign, developed in conjunction with the City of Peoria, Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce, and the Greater Peoria Economic Development Council, encourages residents to shop local over the Thanksgiving weekend and support their community.

Shoppers who stop in to any business in Peoria County between November 24-26, 2017 can be entered to win a gift card package to local businesses. To enter, shoppers simply take a photo of themselves in the local business and upload it to Facebook, Twitter or Instagram with the tag #GrowPeoriaCounty. Throughout the weekend multiple participants will be randomly selected to win $100 in gift cards to local businesses. A flyer outlining the program is attached.

Grow Peoria County is a year-round economic development program that encourages local residents to purchase goods and services from their neighbors – local business owners – year-round and particularly over the holiday shopping season. By shopping locally in Peoria County, our economy is fortified and sales tax dollars continue to support vital public services such as law enforcement, fire protection, public works, and more.
