Ahead of the holiday season, the Chickasha Chamber of Commerce is encouraging shoppers to buy local by offering a financial incentive. The Chamber’s “Buy Chickasha” program supports local merchants by giving shoppers the chance to win $5,000, $3,000 or $2,000 in cash when they spend at a participating business.
"Thanks to our sponsors First National Bank, Hilliary Communications, Two Vets Clothing Company, and SaltCreek Casino, Buy Chickasha creates a unique experience for shoppers and gives retailers an extra advantage," says Cassandra Ersland, President and CEO of the Chickasha Chamber of Commerce. "The enticement to win money while keeping our tax dollars local is a win-win for the entire community.”
Just for visiting a participating business, people will receive one ticket. They receive an additional ticket for each ten-dollar purchase with a maximum of 100 tickets per purchase. Participants must be 18 years or older to win. Tax exempt purchases do not qualify, with the exception of Disabled Veterans.
Participating merchants include Chicken Express, Chick’s Liquor, Cotton Patch Café, Factory Connection, Jay’s Jewelry, Liberty Drug, Okie Mountain Trading Co., Polished Boutique, Ross Seed/True Value Hardware, Shollie’s Sweets, Sooner Nutrition, Shoot the Moon Gift Baskets, Steelman’s Framing Gifts & Sew Much More, Southern Blossom Boutique, Tropical Smoothie Café, Two Vets Clothing Company, US Cellular, WhipLash Salon & Boutique and Wing T’s.
The Buy Chickasha Campaign kicked off on Nov. 18 and ends on Sunday, December 15. The drawing will be Dec. 16, at 3 p.m. Participants do not have to be present to win. The winning number will be announced on chickashachamber.com, facebook.com/chickashachamber and KOOL 105.5.
