Save Your Receipts For a Chance to Win up to $150 in Downtown Gift Certificates!

Why shop small? You’ll discover quality, one-of-kind, artisan items that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll receive personalized attention from small business owners and employees who are knowledgeable about the products they sell. Most importantly, you’ll make a significant impact on our community by investing your money locally. By shopping small, you’re investing in our schools, roads, and other services we use daily.

And on top of that, we’re making shopping small even sweeter for you! Save your holiday shopping receipts, because each week in December we’re drawing two lucky winners to win big in downtown gift certificates. Here’s what we’re giving away each week:

December 7th: Two $50 Magpie Diner gift card winners (sponsored by Flora Pettit)
December 14th: Two $50 Downtown Dollars winners (sponsored by Digital Minerva)
December 21th: Two $100 Walkabout Outfitter gift card winners (sponsored by Flora Pettit)
December 28th: Two $150 Downtown Dollars winners (sponsored by Daniel J. Neher)

How to Enter:

Support Downtown!
Shop or dine at any downtown merchant or restaurant (in-store or online) and save your receipts. See our holiday gift guide, online shopping directory, and downtown directory for inspiration!

Submit Your Receipts:
Snap a pic or screenshot of your receipt or order confirmation showing $25 or more and email it to Each $25 spent counts as an additional entry! So, for example, if you spend $77 at one store or restaurant, that will count as three entires when you submit it to us. The grand total, after taxes, tips, and shipping, is what we will count. We will round up if you’re within $3 of an additional entry. Receipts must be dated 11/23/2020 or later.

See if You Win!
Each Monday during the campaign period we will draw two random winners from receipts submitted during the prior week to win the prizes listed in the schedule above. Entries must be submitted by 9am the Monday of the drawing to be eligible for that week’s drawing. So if you have your eye on a Walkabout Outfitter gift card for example, make sure you email your receipts in after 9am on 12/14 and before 9am on 12/21! Prizes are not able to be swapped or substituted — if a winner does not wish to claim their prize, a new winner will be drawn.
