• Buy Local or Goodbye Local Campaign

    The Buy Local or Goodbye Local contest was a chamber-led initiative to encourage our community to buy local so that we can keep local businesses operating during challenging times. There is strength in numbers and together we can pull through, so we had a little fun while doing it!
    Contest details:
    1.    Post a photo of the product or service you purchased on location, or the check out screen on the website, through an Airdrie business on Facebook or Instagram.
    2.    Tag or mention @airdriechamber and the Airdrie business you shopped at.

    Items or services must have been purchased through an Airdrie business and the business to be showcased.

    Weekly prizes purchased from local businesses valued at $100 and one grand prize worth $500 were won!
    Contest ran May 3rd through May 31st, 2021
