Shop Local 2017 Winner, John Girdauskas!



The Chamber’s Shop Local program has now concluded for 2017. Congratulations to the lucky winner of $1,000 spending money, John Girdauskas of Tiny Township! 


During the month of November, shoppers were rewarded for every $20 spent at any of the participating businesses.

The program is designed to benefit the consumers and merchants in the communities of Southern Georgian Bay by keeping our dollars local and supporting our local economy. 


We had a successful month with 1,515 ballots submitted totaling $303,000 spent at participating businesses. 


Thank you to everyone who participated, and to all the participating businesses! 


Chamber Vice President, Doug Sagan, and winner, John Girdauskas
