The Crosby Area Chamber’s Buy Close By program is kicking up a notch now, with a special event on Thursday, a new passport program encouraging visits to local restaurants and informational flipcharts going out to local businesses.
This quarter’s focus for Buy Close Buy is to encourage people to eat local. Passports available at local restaurants encourage people to collect stamps from six of 10 businesses listed who sell or serve food.
Once the stamps are collected, the passports can be turned in at area financial institutions to win up to $125 in Crosby Bucks.
Workers at many Chamber businesses will be sporting new Buy Close By t-shirts tomorrow, Thursday, Dec. 21, while inviting patrons to wear ugly Christmas sweaters to receive discounts or register for prizes.
