The season’s hustle and bustle is fast approaching and what better way to spread holiday cheer than by supporting your local businesses. Each time you spend $100 dollars at a local store $68 stays in the local community, opposed to $43 dollars when you shop at a national chain store.
This year as part of the Unwrap Lincoln Square Ravenswood Program the Lincoln Square Ravenswood Chamber of Commerce will reward the first 150 shoppers who spend $300 at Lincoln Square Ravenswood businesses, with a $50 gift certificate to a local restaurant or café in the community. All shoppers have to do is collect their receipts starting November 23rd – December 24th and turn them into the Chamber office. Full details on the program can be found online at www.lincolnsquareravenswood.
This year the chamber is also continuing their winter tradition of “Sip & Shop.” Don’t let winter’s chills stop you from shopping your favorite local businesses. Each Thursday in December from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm, participating businesses will keep their doors open a bit later while you stroll, sip and nibble on complementary treats. Many of the businesses will also offer special discounts on Thursday’s in December.
