Contest now closed. Thank you for your participation!
'Tis the season for holiday shopping!
It's also a time of year to support small, local businesses. And in Macomb County, we have
more than 1,600 independently owned and operated retailers -- unique stores that enhance our main streets and create a distinct sense of place for our 27 communities.
So we're once again launching the Shop Local Macomb contest to shine a spotlight on these businesses. The best part? Shoppers have a chance to win one of ten $150 gift cards, donated by First State Bank, and an extra opportunity to help businesses receive a $1,000 grant. Businesses highlighted by consumers through photos will be automatically entered to win a grant. Winning shoppers and businesses will be announced on Monday, Dec. 4.
To enter, patrons can:
Snap a photo
Visit a local retailer and snap a photo of your experience. Whether you stopped by a clothing boutique, gift shop or winery, we want to see you out and about supporting small businesses.
Submit your entry
Submit your entry via a portal. It should take less than five minutes.
