Chamber to Kick Off Santa Shops November 21

The Covington County Chamber of Commerce will host its annual “Santa Shops Covington County First” event from November 21 through December 3, 2019.  Supporting local businesses is vital to the health and strength of a community, and the Chamber is encouraging the residents of Covington County to visit local stores and businesses when buying those all important gifts for loved ones.
To make shopping local more enticing, the Chamber is offering incentives and prizes to customers who do business with participating merchants in Covington County.   As they shop, customers will have the opportunity to register for prizes and for Chamber Dollars valued at $500, $300, and $100.  The drawing for the prizes and Chamber Dollars  will be held on Thursday, December 5 prior to the Collins Christmas Parade, which begins at 6:30 p.m.  Winners of Chamber Dollars will have until  December 24 to spend their prize money.
Participating businesses must be paid members of the Covington County Chamber of Commerce.  Names of participating businesses will be listed in the advertisements.
The Chamber is asking participating businesses to provide the prizes from their stores which will be given away as part of the program.  Merchants will draw for the store prizes and notify winners on December 5.  Store winners will also be eligible for the Grand Prize Drawing.  Customers who register must provide their name, address and phone number.
The “Santa Shops” program is designed to keep tax dollars in the county and promote businesses working together to create greater success for all.
