Shop Local Twitter Treasure Hunt Returns to Flagstaff

shoplocal tth2 Local First Arizona and Bookmans Entertainment Exchange have partnered again to bring the 2nd Shop Local Twitter Treasure Hunt to Flagstaff. Treasure hunters are invited to follow along on Twitter for clues about the local business holding onto a prize basket stuffed with local products.

Starting at 8:00 am, on Monday, May 30th and continuing through Friday, June 3rd, tweets will be sent from the Local First Northern Arizona account (@LFANorthernAZ) and the Bookmans Flagstaff account (@BookmansFlag) revealing clues about which local business  is holding onto the daily prize basket. There will be one prize basket available each day. Once a treasure hunter discovers which business the clues refer to, he or she must visit that business and say the phrase “I love local business!” to win. The first person to arrive in person and say this phrase will be the winner and may claim the prize basket. There is no purchase necessary to play but winners must agree to have their photo taken and shared on social media.
