Campaign To Get People To Shop Locally On Central Coast Offering To Help Buy Presents


The pandemic has created tough times for many businesses on the Central and South Coasts.  Shutdowns have prompted more people to turn to online shopping. 

A Santa Barbara County community is hoping to get people to shop locally through a contest which pays for some of their presents.

Molly Schiff is with the Santa Maria Valley Chamber of Commerce.  The Chamber has launched a holiday campaign to encourage people to shop local.  The “Shop On Us” campaign!” will reimburse winners for up to $200 of purchases at local stores. 

Schiff says there will be at least 10 winners.

A minimum purchase of $50 is required, but receipts can be bundled.  People can enter by sending in photos of their receipts by text, e-mail or mail.  You can find all the information at:
