Shopping Spree Contest

One of the more popular facets of the Shop Where Your Heart Is campaign is the annual Shopping Spree Contest. Local Chamber retailers become a contest entry point by paying $100 that goes toward the cash prizes and the promotions for the contest. Customers then enter the contest to win $1,000 in cash prizes at any of the participating Chamber retailers during the contest dates (beginning Super Saturday in November through the middle of December). The cash prize is to be spent at any Chamber member business. The lucky winners are drawn during the annual Roane Alliance Christmas Open House (held the middle of December) and notified the same day.
