Without a doubt, Republic is a tight knit community. We support each other through good times, tragic times – and everything in between. Need a hand? At least 5 different people, most of whom you probably know, will offer their help. New to town? You’ll find scores of people ready to tell you about their favorite cross country ski run, or about which beer on tap at the Republic Brewing Company is their go-to. Friendly and resourceful is what we pride ourselves on.
Never is that more true than during the holiday season. In the spirit of the season, the Republic Chamber of Commerce is sponsoring a “Hometown Holiday” event, complete with prizes drawn at the end of the month. To enter the drawing for gift certificates to local businesses, simply make a $10 minimum purchase at participating merchants and you’ll be entered to win. Each time you visit and make a $10 minimum purchase, you’ll be entered again! What better way to promote shopping local?
Per the Hometown Holidays Chamber of Commerce Facebook page:
“Local businesses are contributing Gift Certificates in partnership with the Republic Chamber of Commerce. Minimum purchase of $10 at participating merchants, one entry per visit not per $ amount purchased. Drawing to be held Dec 30th.
All entries will be put into one drawing pool and a winner will be randomly drawn for each prize. Maximum value of prizes is $50 Value.
Merchants need not be members of the Chamber of Commerce to participate. Our goal is to help the community focus on buying local first for all their shopping needs.”
So why not take a walk down Clark Avenue (our main street) and see what our many local businesses have in store for you!?
