By Anna Hill

Buy local, feel better and qualify to win $1,000. It’s a win-win-win.

 

River City Company has launched a $1000 Express Card Holiday Sweepstakes to support local retail, highlighting 85 local businesses.

Businesses participating in the sweepstakes are sourcing locally made products, said Emily Mack, president and CEO, River City Company, — avoiding supply delays.

As the holidays approach, businesses have attempted to increase inventory. While retailers are attempting to meet the holiday rush, up to 77% of ports are currently experiencing delays on delivery and businesses are struggling through supply shortages.

Good news for retailers:  many shoppers want to make up for limited in-person shopping in the 2020 holiday season, one study shows 30% plan to increase purchases this year to compensate for  disrupted holiday shopping last year.

The same study reveals 50% report they want to save money by using more coupons for holiday shopping – a perfect match with River City Company’s sweepstakes.

 To enter, shoppers must visit participating businesses, where there will be a QR code  to scan. After scanning,  the user will be prompted to provide contact information and enter a mystery verification word. For every three submissions, participants receive one entry to win the Chattanooga Express Card. The drawing will be Dec. 17 at noon.
