Shop Oro Valley launches summer campaign

TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) -

Beginning May 1, the Town of Oro Valley will launch the summer addition of its 'shop local' campaign. 

According to an Oro Valley release the new summer shopping program will run from May 1 to July 1.  During this time anyone, resident or visitor is eligible to participate.  They must first purchase at least $25 before they are entered into a weekly prize drawing.

Winners will be announced at 5 p.m. each Friday, with the final prize being a gift basket valued at $500. 

"It's so important that our residents understand the connection between the dollars they spend locally and their quality of life. Money that is spent in our community helps fund vital services like public safety and roadway infrastructure," said Oro Valley Mayor Satish I. Hiremath, in the release. "Shopping during the summer months is essential to the retention of our businesses and additionally provides a great opportunity to invest in our own quality of life!"

To enter purchases submit receipts in one of two ways - bring them down to the Oro Valley Town Hall (11000 N. La Canada Dr.) Monday to Friday from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. or online at https://auth.orovalleyaz.gov/shop-oro-valley-contact-form

Tom Alfonso, a local business owner and participant said, "Thank you to our residents and visitors who shop locally-owned stores and support our community.  When you shop local, your dollars stay in the community and help support non-profits."
