The holidays are just around the corner, and that means shopping. Everyone is looking for those special gifts for everyone on their nice list, and the Aiken Chamber knows just where you can find those gifts….in Aiken.
We are urging shoppers to spend money locally this holiday season. Shoppers will receive a numbered red ticket for each $25 in purchases of goods or services from participating businesses. Weekly drawings will be held and cash prizes of $5,000 are being awarded. The campaign will begin November 1 and run through December 13.
You could be $25 away from $1,000!
