For Thanksgiving weekend, Peoria County and the City of Peoria are launching their collaborative new buy local campaign that encourages people to "Live & Shop Peoria County" and "Live & Shop Peoria." With the assistance of the Peoria Area Chamber of Commerce, over forty local businesses are sponsoring the Thanksgiving campaign by donating a $25.00 gift card and offering Small Business Saturday specials on November 29. Gift card packages of $100 will be awarded to Peoria County (and City) residents who shop any business in Peoria County between November 27 - 30.
To enter to win, residents must post a photo of themselves shopping at a Peoria County business over Thanksgiving weekend on their personal Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram page with the name of the business and the hashtag #LiveShopPeoriaCounty. While residents may enter the contest by shopping any business in Peoria County, sponsoring businesses are featured in the attached shopping guide and promotional flyer, as well as on the "Live & Shop Peoria/County" Facebook page at www.fb.com/LiveShopPeoriaCounty and Metro Peoria's website (click here). Local businesses are added to the Facebook page and website as more register to participate.
"Live & Shop Peoria/County" encourages local residents to purchase goods and services from their neighbors - local business owners - year round and particularly over the busy holiday shopping season. By shopping in Peoria County and the City of Peoria, our local economy is fortified - with increased job opportunities and fewer business closings - and sales tax dollars continue to support local government and vital public services such as law enforcement, fire protection, public works, and more.
