“The purpose of the contest is to encourage shoppers to spend their holiday dollars locally. Especially now, with our small businesses feeling the effects of COVID, the loyalty and support of the community is vital,” commented G-ACC’s Interim Executive Director Valerie Meyers. She added, “Imagine our town without it’s small businesses, and you’d be imagining a place without the neighborly smiles or friendly hellos that greet you when you walk through the doors of our local shops. We have so many great retailers and services just outside our own front doors that shopping local is super convenient. By shopping locally, we’re supporting our neighbors and strengthening our whole community by circling those holiday dollars back into the community.”

For more information, call the Chamber office at 597-4610 or visit the Chamber’s website at www.greencastlepachamber.org. Serving the area since 1955, the Greencastle-Antrim Chamber of Commerce strives to promote member prosperity through economic well-being and community vitality. Join. Grow. Prosper.
