Shop St. Joseph officially kicked off Wednesday.
“It’s definitely time for people to start their holiday shopping,” Kristi Bailey with the St. Joseph Chamber of Commerce said. “(The) Shop St. Joe program encourages people to shop locally when they’re doing Christmas shopping.”
The Chamber of Commerce shopping program gives shoppers the opportunity to win prizes and a $10,000 grand prize.
When shoppers go into a participating business, they will receive a ticket just for shopping there and another ticket for every $10 spent. The program runs until Dec. 16, with the grand prize winning ticket number drawn on Dec. 18.
