“25 Days of Chamber Christmas” Contest Launches on Small Business Saturday
The Augusta Metro Chamber of Commerce is launching a “25 Days of Chamber Christmas” contest beginning on Small Business Saturday®, November 28, to encourage the Augusta community to Shop Small® all season long and support local small businesses.
Each time someone spends $25 at a participating local small business, from Saturday, November 28 to Tuesday, December 22, they will be entered to win a GRAND PRIZE gift basket filled with great local gifts! Each $25 purchase is an entry. Up to four entries are allowed per purchase. Shop at multiple participating businesses for additional entries. Online purchases will be included for entries. To enter, snap a picture of your receipt and email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Participating local small businesses include Augusta Candle Company, Augusta Custom Clubs, Augusta GreenJackets Baseball Club, Buona Caffe Artisan Roasted Coffee, Cartridge World, CounterSync, Fat Man’s Mill Café, FIELD Botanicals, MindBloom Health Coach, Morris Museum of Art, The Pizza Joint (Aiken, Downtown Augusta and Evans), Sol Himalayan Salt Cave & Spa, Soul(tre), The Southern Salad and Turner's Keyboards Inc.
On November 28, 2020, the 11th Annual Small Business Saturday® marks a celebration of small businesses and the positive impact they have on communities across the country. Shopping and dining small all season long are more important this year than ever. In fact, 62% of U.S. small businesses reported that they need to see consumer spending return to pre-COVID levels by the end of 2020 in order to stay in business. 1 When you Shop Small® this holiday season – and all year long – you can help create a big impact.
