Shop Local Holiday Giveaway Program Begins!

November 30, 2020

The Brevard/Transylvania Chamber of Commerce is offering two ways for folks to win prizes when they visit and shop with participating Transylvania County businesses this holiday season starting November 30th! Rather than shopping online or out of county, Think Local Transylvania!

Shop Local Passport

Chance to win one of two $250 prize drawings!

When you make a purchase at a participating business location (see list below), present our Shop Local Passport to receive a special stamp. Non-retail participants (such as a bank or service provider) can provide a stamp for new or existing customers too! When your shopping passport is filled with five stamps, add your name and phone number in the space provided and return it to our Visitor Center by noon on December 18th to be entered for one of two drawings for $250 in Transylvania Bucks!

Shop Local Passports are available for pick up at our Visitor Center, located at 175 East Main Street in Brevard, or in our ads in The Transylvania Times. You may also download and print a passport by clicking here (insert hyperlink).

Shoppers may receive one stamp per purchase per day at each business location.
Shoppers may complete and submit multiple, full passports to increase the chance of winning.
Winners will be announced on Friday, December 18st.
Transylvania Bucks spend just like cash at participating business locations and must be used by December 31st.


Holiday Stocking Hunt

$750 in prizes available! Fun for the entire family, and no purchase necessary!

Each Monday, starting November 30th and continuing for three weeks, our Chamber elves will “hide” five special holiday stockings (pictured here) at five randomly selected participating business locations (see list below). Shoppers are encouraged to hunt for the special stockings while they browse and shop, but please don’t disrupt any merchandise or displays! The stockings will be placed where you can easily see and retrieve them, as long as you keep your eyes open and know what you are looking for.

If you find one of our special holiday stockings, take a selfie with the stocking at the business location (showing the business name or logo if possible) and share your discovery with others on social media. Make sure to tag us @brevardchamber on Instagram or #brevardncchamber on Facebook, and the business’s social media page, on your post so we can help you celebrate! Business staff can help you with a picture if you aren’t able to take a selfie yourself.

Then, just bring the stocking to our Visitor Center (175 East Main Street, Brevard) to exchange it for $50 in Transylvania Bucks!
There are five chances to win each week for three weeks, so keep your eyes open for the stocking shown here when you are out and about.
Limit of one stocking prize per person per week.
Transylvania Bucks spend just like cash at participating business locations and must be used by December 31st.
