Chamber’s Holiday Hometown Shopping giveaway encourages local shopping

As consumers shop local this holiday season the Grundy County Chamber and the Channahon Minooka Chamber want to know about it!

To encourage local buying the Chamber is sponsoring a Holiday Hometown Shopping giveaway now through Dec. 14. The rules are simple – just let the Chamber know about your purchases and your name will be entered into a drawing where participants can win more than a dozen local prizes all bought by the Chamber from its members around Grundy County.

You can let the Chamber know in whatever way works for you, tag the Chamber on Facebook or Instagram with a picture of your find, send an email, or even just call the Chamber office and tell us about your shop small experience.

“Maybe you’re catering your Christmas dinner from a local restaurant, bought a spa package for your wife, or purchased some growlers of locally-brewed beer for your husband – whatever it is if it’s bought in Grundy County tell us about it,” said Grundy Chamber President & CEO Christina Van Yperen.

Sometimes finding the perfect gift can be difficult for certain people on your list, so if you purchase a Grundy Chamber Gift Certificate, the Chamber will also enter your name into the giveaway raffle.

Follow the Grundy Chamber and Channahon Minooka Chamber on Facebook and Instagram to see videos and photos of the prizes.

“We all know shopping, ordering food, and getting services from right here in Grundy County is more imperative than ever as our local business community battles the impacts of COVID-19. The community has really come out in force to support our area businesses and the Chamber wants to say thank you, while keeping it going. So please, help us spread the word by sharing our posts, telling your friends about the Holiday Hometown Shopping Giveaway, and participating! Most importantly, remember to shop your hometown this holiday season,” Van Yperen said.

The Chamber will enter names into the giveaway through Dec. 14 and will pull the winners on Dec. 15. Winners will be notified by the Chamber. Prizes have to be picked up from the Chamber’s Morris office at 909 Liberty St.
