The Carleton Place & District Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Smiths Falls & District Chamber of Commerce and the Perth & District Chamber of Commerce, is launching a Think Local holiday shopping contest to support local businesses during the holiday shopping season.

The Think Local “Have a Lanark County Christmas” contest launches invites residents to submit their receipts for any purchases made within Lanark County between Nov. 20 and Dec. 24, 2021. For every $20 in purchases submitted, one ballot (to a maximum of 10 ballots per transaction) will be entered into a contest for a chance to win three prizes worth $500, $300 or $200. Multiple entries may be submitted.

Receipts can be uploaded through the Think Local website in jpeg, png or pdf format and can include purchases made at any Lanark County business, including gas, groceries, Christmas gifts, food and drink etc. Prizing will include Lanark County products and services for a staycation experience close to home.

“We are encouraging local residents to shop close to home this holiday season, and support our local business community,” said Jackie Kavanagh, Manager of the Carleton Place & District Chamber of Commerce. “Every purchase counts, and this contest will provide yet another incentive for consumers to think local before making purchases this year.”

The contest closes on Dec. 24, 2021 at 6 p.m. and winners will be announced on Jan. 4, 2022. Receipts can be uploaded through the Think Local website at
