The Zachary Chamber of Commerce has announced a campaign urging residents to shop locally from Monday through Dec. 11. During this time, all purchases made at participating Zachary businesses will count toward drawings of $500, $300 or $150 in gift cards, which will be redeemable at the businesses.
Each card will be stamped by the participating store in $10 increments up to $100. To reach $100, shoppers must spend money at one or a combination of participating merchants.
Unlimited cards are allowed, but each singular transaction has a $100 limit. When the card is completed, it must be returned to the Zachary Chamber of Commerce, 4633 Main St. A dropbox will be available for the cards.
All cards must be returned by 4 p.m. Dec. 11 to be included in the drawing, which will be held at 6 p.m. at the gazebo at the start of the Christmas in the Village celebration. Winners do not need to be present to win.
Cards will be available at all participating merchants and the Chamber office beginning Monday.
“Through this shop locally campaign, we recognize and support Chamber member businesses as they provide jobs and funding for our city, school system and public services through sales tax dollars,” Chamber Director Heather Prejean said. “With the holiday shopping season upon us, please join us in making Zachary a shopping destination, helping keep more money in our local economy.”
