City of Goodyear, Arizona
For Immediate Release: Oct. 8, 2009
Shop local and keep your dollars working for you
GOODYEAR, ARIZ. (Oct. 8, 2009) It's time again for our annual Shop Goodyear, Everyone GAINs campaign, encouraging local residents and visitors to spend locally. Residents are invited to enter weekly drawings for a chance to win great prizes from participating businesses. Just drop receipts from Goodyear merchants totaling $25 or more into a box at Goodyear City Hall, 190 N. Litchfield Road.
Grand Prizes include diamond stud earrings from Osborne Jewelers, a stay at the new TownePlace Suites, and $150 wine tasting from Ground Control. Drawings will be held at Goodyear's GAIN and Field of Screams Halloween events on October 24 at Goodyear Ballpark and, again, on December 23 at City Hall. Winners need not be present, but participants must be 18 years or older to enter.
By shopping at local businesses, Goodyear residents help keep their dollars right here, working for them. Retail sales tax dollars make up nearly 30 percent of the city's operating budget and pay for police, fire, streets, parks and recreation.
"It's very 'green' behavior. You'll save money on fuel costs by driving shorter distances to shop, and help reduce the number of vehicles on the roadways," said Barbra Coffee, retail business manager for the City of Goodyear.
Prize Sponsors: Osborne Jewelers, TownePlace Suites by Marriott, Dino’s Greek & Italian Restaurant, Wildflower Bread Company, Majerle’s Sports Grill, Ground Control Coffee & Wine Bar, Nakama Sushi Restaurant & Lounge, RideNow Powersports, Augie’s Sports Grill, Bella Luna Italian Ristorante, Cartridge World and RideNow.
