Shop Roane Shopping Contest
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.
Those participating in the 2019 Shop Where Your Heart Is Shopping Spree included:
A&E Mercantile, A1 Tactical, Bunch Marine, Burger Station 120, Cadillac Grill, Earl Duff Subaru, Emory Lane Boutique, Enrichment Federal Credit Union, Everly Blu, G&G Gunshop, Gateway IGA, Griffin Insurance, Jerry's Bait Shop, Jim Henry Event Center, Lakeview Dental Arts, Live and Let Live Drug Store, Lowe's Home Improvement, MeMe's Restaurant, Patterson's Home Appliance Center, Scandlyn Lumber Co. - Kingston, Shoney's - Harriman, SimplyBank., Tennessee's Finest Awards & Frameworks and Wal-Mart Super Center.
