The Irish Hills are a great place to live, and a fabulous place to shop. The Irish Hills Regional Chamber of Commerce is offering a $500 incentive for you to support local businesses with The Irish Hills Christmas Crawl. That’s quite a bonus for visiting quaint shops and businesses with specialized services in a warm, friendly, small town atmosphere!

Imagine winning $500 dollars in cold, hard cash just for making purchases at places that make our community great. You can pick up your “Christmas List” at the Chamber office or any of the 17 participating businesses. As you shop, try to cross off all the locations on the list. The more you visit, the better your chances are to win! Even partially finished lists will be entered for a chance to win a consolation prize!

Keep your receipts during the valid shopping day period, November 26, 2021 — December 17, 2021. Your shopping list and proof of purchases needs to be turned in to the Irish Hills Chamber of Commerce by December 21, 2021, at 124 S. Main Street, PO Box 805, Brooklyn, Michigan 49230.
