(Warsaw, NY) – It was a banner showing for the Wyoming County Chamber’s “Shop Wyoming and Win” annual Buy Local promotion this year. We are pleased to announce the selection of the four lucky winning individuals who were randomly chosen on Tuesday, February 8, 2022.
This year’s winners are: Rebecca Goewey from Gainesville, won a rocker recliner donated by Harding’s Furniture, Flooring & Mattress in Attica; Becky Biddle from East Aurora, won the Gas Grill donated by Ace Hardware Warsaw/Attica; Ken Deppen from Elma, won a “Dine out Wyoming Gift Package;” and David Turski from Attica, won a “Dine out Wyoming Gift Package.”
The Wyoming County Chamber & Tourism holds the annual drawing at the Wyoming County Board of Supervisors' regular February Meeting. Town Supervisors, Jerry Davis from Covington, Doug Berwanger from Arcade, Ellen Grant from Bennington, and Jim Brick from Perry assisted by drawing the winning tickets during the meeting.
“On behalf of the Chamber and the community, we extend congratulations to all the winners of this year’s “Shop Wyoming and Win” buy-local promotion,” said Chamber President Scott Gardner. “Thank you to the many businesses who participated this year with support and placing of drop boxes. We also thank everyone who shopped locally in Wyoming County, as it was critical to helping our local businesses this holiday season.”
“The prizes are made possible with the strong support of local county businesses. We specially thank Ace Hardware of Attica and Warsaw for the generous donation of the gas grill, and Harding’s Furniture, Flooring & Mattress in Attica for donating the Rocker Recliner,” concluded Gardner. “These businesses generously donated prizes and we encourage shoppers to stop in to support these outstanding local family-run small businesses throughout the year.”
This year marks the eleventh year the Chamber has sponsored the holiday promotion as part of the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce’s shop local programs. After weeks of planning and delivering the entry boxes to small businesses all over the county, the contest kicked off on November 1, 2021.
A record number of 1,164 shoppers participated by submitting receipts totaling over $1.3 million, and generating estimated sales taxes of $110,181 during the promotional period. Participants were required to save their receipts from purchases made in Wyoming County between November 1 and Christmas Eve 2021. They then submitted the receipts by mail, in-person, or in drop boxes by the deadline in early January. For every $50 worth of purchases made in Wyoming County, the participants were eligible for one entry in the drawing that took place on February 8, 2022.
