Ready. Set. Shop!

Holiday Shop Local Event!
We’re gearing up for another holiday season! This holiday season the Texas City-La Marque Chamber of Commerce will start celebrating all its businesses in a new way. Starting Friday, November 25, the Chamber will be accepting receipts, to be traded in for raffle tickets! This initiative is part of the Holiday Shop Local campaign “Ready. Set. Shop!”.

From Thursday, November 25 until Wednesday, December 7 the Chamber will be accepting receipts from purchases made at local Chamber member businesses. This initiative will not only help to stimulate our local economy but also offer a $500 reward certificate to the raffle winner for spending their money locally. The money we keep here circulates again and again through the local economy, leveraging itself through business growth, job creation, lower taxes, public services, civic pride—a better life for everyone!

How it Works:
Receipts will be collected at the Chamber from individuals who have recently shopped at local retail businesses from November 25th until close of business (5pm) December 7th. Each receipt collected will gain individuals a raffle ticket to be entered into a drawing with a grand prize.

How it will be Promoted:
Chamber retail members with be identified, promoted, and advertised as participating in the November Newsletter as well as eblast and social media blasts. Participating businesses will receive promotional materials for both digital and in-store marketing.

Not only will this benefit local businesses and provide additional incentives for people to shop locally, but it will also give, someone a reward for doing so.

The Chamber will also use the information about local spending and sales tax revenue as measurables for the success of the program.

Who will be the Winner:
At the annual Chamber Christmas Party on December 8th, a drawing will take place where the winning ticket will be drawn!
