The Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce is pleased to announce the 12th annual Shop Wyoming and Win shop local promotion will kick off on Black Friday, November 25, 2022.
While this fun promotion is great for local businesses, shopping in Wyoming County this holiday season can also pay off for a few lucky shoppers! If the opening (first half) kickoff of the 2023 Super Bowl is returned for a touchdown, one lucky individual will be drawn to win a cash prize of $25,000, which is sponsored by Old Souls Catering in Perry. Even if that doesn’t happen, there is still an opportunity to win one of the several guaranteed prizes including a gas grill donated by Ace Hardware of Attica & Warsaw; and a rocker recliner donated by Harding’s Furniture, Flooring and Mattress of Attica/Mt. Morris, and a Lenovo IdeaPad Laptop donated by Prizm Tech Shop in Arcade.
"The Chamber is celebrating 12 years of Shop Wyoming and Win, and we are pleased it’s grown every year due to all of the shoppers that participate. Shopping locally has a big impact on our local economy, and helps our small businesses survive and thrive” said Chamber President and CEO Scott Gardner. “Our local businesses are there day in and day out to provide needed goods and services and also help local organizations, sports teams, and community projects with donations and support. Shopping local and keeping our dollars in the community benefits everyone and strengthens the economy in so many ways.”
Participating in Shop Wyoming and Win is easy! Just save your receipts from purchases made anywhere in Wyoming County between November 25 thru December 24, 2022. For example, you purchase $25 worth of goods in one store and $25 in goods at another store – this creates one entry. Every time you make $50 worth of purchases at any store, restaurant, or shop in Wyoming County, you get one entry in the conditional $25,000 drawing and the drawings for the guaranteed prizes.
Shoppers must submit receipts to the Wyoming County Chamber or at drop boxes located at Chamber member businesses throughout the County. All receipts must be received by 5:00 PM on January 6, 2023. All receipts must be originals and have the shopper’s full name, phone number, address, and email written or stamped on the receipt. The drawing will be held on February 14, 2023, at the Wyoming County Government Center. Receipts can be mailed to the Chamber office at 36 Center Street, Suite A, Warsaw, NY 14569.
Now celebrating 12 years, the successful holiday promotion is part of the Wyoming County Chamber of Commerce’s Buy Local program that seeks to encourage shoppers to buy their products locally and discover all the great products and services found in Wyoming County.
