(Warsaw, NY) – Shopping anywhere in Wyoming County this holiday season could really pay off! This year the Chamber is changing up the grand prize scenario by making it contingent on a new set of plays in the Super Bowl. If the 2018 AFC team has five or more takeaways from the 2018 NFC team during the game, one lucky individual will be drawn to win a cash prize of $25,000.

Even if that doesn’t happen, there is still an opportunity to win great guaranteed prizes including a Char-Broil gas grill donated by Ace Hardware of Attica & Warsaw; a Rocker Recliner donated by Harding’s Attica Furniture and Flooring; and a $100 Wyoming County Visa Gift Card.

"This is one of the Chamber's most successful shop local promotions and we are pleased to see it grow every year," said Chamber President Scott Gardner. "With an economy that has shown signs of improvement, we look forward to another great holiday shopping seasonal promotion that encourages shoppers to ‘think-shop-buy local’ right here at home. This helps our small businesses and communities, and adds a needed boost to the local economy through the holiday season."

Now in its eighth year, 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 that can be found in Wyoming County. The Chamber’s online member directory hosts over 500 businesses where shoppers can find for the gifts and services they may be looking for this holiday season.

Participation is easy, simply save your receipts from purchases made in Wyoming County between “Black Friday,” November 23, 2018 and Christmas Eve, December 24, 2018. Shoppers must submit receipts to the Wyoming County Chamber or at drop boxes that will be located at Chamber member businesses throughout the County. All receipts must be received by 5:00 PM on January 11, 2019.

All receipts must be originals and have the shopper’s full name, phone number, address, and email clearly written or stamped on the receipt.
