Small businesses are the foundation of our community. They create jobs, build our economy, and create neighborhoods. When you shop at our local small businesses, you help to support the things that make our community great. Money spent here, stays here.

In an effort to promote shopping local, the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce is proud to launch the first annual SHOP LOCAL AND WIN campaign.

Redeem your receipts at the chamber office and be entered into the cash prize drawing. For every $50 spent in the Nashoba Valley territory (Ayer, Berlin, Bolton, Boylston, Clinton, Devens, Groton, Harvard, Lancaster, Littleton, Pepperell, Shirley, Sterling, Townsend, West Boylston, Westford), consumers will be entered to win $1,000.

That amount is tripled when spent at the business of a member of the Nashoba Valley Chamber of Commerce. Receipts must be dated between Nov. 15, 2013, and Dec. 31, 2013, and can be redeemed at the chamber office during regular business hours by Jan. 10, 2014 (contact the chamber for office hours).

Special thanks to Enterprise Bank, Murphy Insurance Agency, Hometown Bank, MCA Promo and The Catalano Companies for sponsoring this program. Companies interested in sponsoring this program should contact Melissa Fetterhoff at the Nashoba Valley Chamber at 978-772-6976.

Winner to be drawn on Wednesday, Jan. 15, at 5 p.m. Need not be present to win.
