Take advantage of chamber’s holiday giveaway

You’ve heard this before: Shop local.

The message is a key one, especially during the holiday shopping season.

Muskogee depends on sales tax revenue generated by shopping here.

And even though we all should to as much shopping local as we can, the Greater Muskogee Area Chamber of Commerce is giving us $12,000 reasons to stay here to shop.

The Magic Holiday Giveaway will continue through Dec. 19. Four $500 weekly prizes and, of course, the $10,000 grand prize will be awarded to those who choose to shop locally.

The chamber’s annual giveaway has been a rousing success over the years. We shouldn’t need incentive to shop here instead of going elsewhere, but the chamber’s effort year after year gives plenty of reasons to do holiday shopping here.

Magic Holiday Giveaway

WHEN: Through Dec. 19.

WHERE: Tickets available at participating businesses. Final drawing 6:30 p.m. Dec. 19, Arrowhead Mall, 501 N. Main St.

PRIZES: Four weekly $500 prizes and one $10,000 grand prize.

INFO: (918) 682-2401.
