BFDDA launches area wide Shop Local 2021

BELLOWS FALLS, Vt. – The Bellows Falls Downtown Development Alliance is excited to announce that Shop Local 2021 has begun. Shoppers can find Shop Local cards at over 40 participating businesses throughout Bellows Falls, Grafton, Rockingham, Saxtons River, and Westminster. Each purchase rewards shoppers with stamps toward a prize drawing.

New this year, BFDDA will hold two prize drawings. The first prize rewards early bird shoppers Wednesday, Dec. 1. The second will be held Wednesday, Jan. 5. BFDDA will feature drawings on Facebook Live. Prizes generously donated by participating businesses include a night at the Grafton Inn, gift basket from MKT Grafton, and many gift certificates.

Shoppers should complete each card fully and include their email, phone number, and zip code. Leave the card in boxes provided by businesses, including Halladay’s Flowers & Gifts, Village Square Booksellers, and J&H Hardware.
