Gift Cards And Grants Available From Shop Local Macomb Contest

Mt. Clemens, MI - In an effort to encourage supporting small businesses this holiday season, Macomb County Planning and Economic Development (MCPED) has announced the return of its Shop Local Macomb contest.

The sixth annual campaign again asks shoppers to give business to independently owned and operated retail establishments. In return, participants can enter into a drawing to win one of 10 $150 gift cards donated by First State Bank.

“The Shop Local Macomb contest gives us a chance to highlight one of the County’s greatest assets - its small businesses,” said Macomb County Executive Mark Hackel. “These independently owned and operated retailers are part of what makes Macomb a great place to call home, so I hope you’ll join me in supporting these establishments this season.”

To enter, participants can: 

  • Snap a picture shopping with a local retailer Thursday, November 17 through Sunday, December 4
  • Submit the entry on MakeMacombYourHome.com
  • Share the images on Facebook or Twitter using the #ShopLocalMacomb​​​​​

Businesses highlighted by consumers through photos will also be automatically entered to win a $1,000 grant. Winning shoppers and businesses will be randomly selected on Monday, December 5.

“It’s always a great way to start the holiday season when we can announce the winners of our Shop Local Macomb contest,” said Vicky Rowinski, director of MCPED. “Both shoppers and businesses benefit from the program in more ways than one and I’m proud of the collaborative effort that it takes to put the initiative together.”

Shop Local Macomb is coordinated by the Macomb County Department of Planning and Economic Development with support from area chambers, including the Sterling Heights Regional Chamber of Commerce, the Macomb County Chamber of Commerce, the Eastpointe-Roseville Chamber of Commerce, the Romeo-Washington Chamber of Commerce, the Richmond Area Chamber of Commerce and the Anchor Bay Chamber of Commerce.
