How it Works
Shop at five participating local businesses OR spend a total of $150 to enter to win great prizes. A sticker will be added to your passport with each purchase to document each business you shop at along with how much you've spent. Once you've reached the goal of 5 businesses or $150, simply leave your completed passport at any of the participating businesses.
Winners will be announced on January 10th, 2018 at Clarkdale Kayak Company! Join us at our Local First Arizona business coalition mixer as we choose the 9 winning passports. Prizes include gift card packages ranging from $25 to $150 in value, a $200 cash prize, and a secret Grand Prize Package courtesy of our community partners, One For The Verde.

We All Win When We Shop Locally
This interactive shopping experience is designed to increase traffic to independently-owned businesses in the Verde Valley during the Holiday season. Last year this program brought nearly $30,000 to downtown businesses in Flagstaff. We hope to replicate this successful holiday program in the Verde Valley and educate consumers on the importance of shopping in locally-owned, independent businesses for holiday gifts, decorations, and personal celebrations.
Looking for more local? Search our online directory for thousands of local businesses across the state, or become a Local Insider to receive updates about opportunities and events like the holiday passport.
