Shop Local 2.0

shop, eat, spend, enjoy

Shop Local And Win!

Our local businesses are a cornerstone to our “sense of place” in the Northwoods. Every time you shop local, you are helping to build a tight-knit community and are making a huge financial impact in our region. 

Every fall we put a spotlight on local retailers, restaurants and service providers. With Shop Local 2.0, we’re doing it again…with a twist!

From Oct. 13 to Nov. 13, we are spotlighting 40 small businesses in Merrill, Tomahawk, Rhinelander and Minocqua on Facebook. On multiple days, we’ll be giving away gift certificates to your favorite locally-owned businesses.* All you’ve got to do is visit your favorite locally owned businesses throughout the month and you could be the recipient of a gift certificate!

That’s it. That’s all!

If you aren’t lucky enough to be one of our recipients of a gift certificate to the local business, don’t worry you still have a chance to win! Tell us what you love about one of your favorite locally owned businesses through Facebook or Instagram using the hashtag #PCCUSharetheCare and you will be entered to win 1 of 2 $50 Chamber Bucks!†

Think big and shop small. For an update on where we’ve been, follow us daily on Facebook or check back here as the days go on!
