Shop Locally – The “Rewards” Are Endless

shoppers_header

The holidays are here.  They really do kick into gear the minute you close the door on your last Halloween trick or treater these days.  But instead of getting all “Grinch-y” about it let’s focus on a very important Oak Park holiday positive.

Downtown Oak Park Shopper’s Rewards are back.

This is a program put into place by the Downtown Oak Park Business District to encourage people to shop, dine and be entertained locally – you are literally rewarded for being a loyal, Oak Park shopper.

How does this all work?

You, the shopper, will receive $50.00 in Shopper’s Reward certificates when you bring in receipts totaling $25.00 or more from at least 7 different local participating downtown Oak Park businesses to the Oak Park Visitor’s Center. The grand receipt total must be at least $400.00 and there is a limit of 3 Shopper’s Reward certificate booklets per household – so according to our math, you could literally receive $150 rewards dollars to spend just by shopping locally (and being organized enough with your receipts).

Then, come January 1st through February 15th, you get to go out and spend the rewards you earned by keeping your shopping dollars local at the very same participating Downtown Oak Park businesses.

Whether you need a Lake Theater movie gift certificate for your babysitter, something fun and French from the Careful Peach for your bestie, or a box of Fannie May mint melt-a-ways to bring as a hostess gift to grandma… you can head to Downtown Oak Park and take care of everyone on your shopping list while earning yourself a little post-holiday cha-ching to spend in 2017.
