Shop Tulsa Campaign in the Works
SMART SHOPPING: The holiday shopping campaigns have begun and shoppers have the opportunity to win great prizes by staying local.
The 2010 Shop Tulsa Campaign is underway. While supporting a community during the holiday shopping season, customers will have a chance to win large cash prizes by saving their receipts for purchases for more than $50.
During an event in downtown Tulsa on Black Friday, the shoppers will have the opportunity to present their receipts and enter for a chance to win one of thousands of dollars in exciting prizes.
This is the first year for the holiday shopping incentives and will hopefully continue for many years to come.
A collection of business owners in the downtown area have teamed together to make the Shop Tulsa Campaign possible.
Owner of Joe Momma’s Pizza Blake Ewing is looking forward to seeing what results that the new incentives will bring to the city. He feels that it is very important to shop locally in order to keep the area thriving.
The Shop Tulsa Campaign will benefit the community in a number of ways. Businesses are given the opportunity to showcase their unique products, promotions and services.
Also, the increase in sales tax collections enables the city to provide important resources to both the business and residential communities. Some of these resources might include improvements to street maintenance and sewer systems. In addition, increases in sales tax during this campaign will also help support the Tulsa Police and Fire Departments.
Receipts from all businesses within the City of Tulsa Corporate Limits will be accepted in the campaign.
Shoppers must be at least 18 years old to participate in the Shop Tulsa Campaign.
Though the shop Tulsa campaign is new to the City of Tulsa, neighboring communities have had holiday shopping campaigns implemented over the last couple of years.
Bixby, Owasso and Broken Arrow have the well-known Buy Campaigns, which have shown proof of the possible increase in sales tax collection during the shopping season. Business leaders in Tulsa are hoping to see similar results this year within their own community.
