The Albert County Chamber of Commerce and participating businesses are excited to welcome you to shop local!
We have developed a passport program to drive traffic to our local businesses. From October 15th to December 20th, it’s your chance to support Albert County organizations and get something in return! Shop local and fill out or scan your visits to complete your virtual passport to win.
Each time you visit a participating shop (physical or online) in Albert County, you can fill in a ballot on-site or scan a QR code from the campaign poster. If it’s an online retailer, you can click the Albert County Chamber of Commerce link to enter. Once you have visited each participating business, your passport is full. You will be entered into a draw to win one of 50 $20-gift cards from the retailer of your choice, and also entered into our grand draw for the chance to win one of our two grand prizes of $500 in local gift cards. To find participating retailers, look for Shop Local posters in store windows and business websites.

“We are directing people to our local business’ doors and websites! With support from the Federal Shop Local fund, it’s important to our board of directors, our members and our community that we focus on driving business forward within our community. Our economy has been stretched enough, this campaign is designed to build awareness, drive purchases and support our members and businesses. Influencers have been brought in to experience and boost our unique experiences, gift cards are purchased from local businesses hoping that people will buy even more once they get them, and the passport program is directly driving business to the doors of our stores, restaurants, markets, producers, artists, accommodations, retailers and service providers.”
