We would like to express our sincere appreciation for all those who joined in our SHOP LOCAL CAMPAIGN for the entire month of December. It was a great success. People brought us receipts from Access Media/ Gallery Gift Shop, AF Snowpushers, Alpine Garden & Gifts, Alpine Lumber, Angel Fire Mini Mart, Blue Dawg Furniture, Enchanted Circle Pottery, Elements @ Angel Fire Resort Country Club, H2 Uptown, Hatcha’s of Angel Fire, High Country, Kokopelli Property Management, Lowe’s Valley Market, Mountain Sports of Angel Fire, RBS True Value, Sweet Shirt Shop, Taos Lifestyle, The Candy Store, The Lodge at Angel Fire Resort, The Pub ‘n grub, The Trailhead, and Zebs Restaurant & Bar. What that means is, each receipt turned into our drawing was at least $50.00 spent in these local establishments or for services used in Angel Fire! There were up to 10 receipts from various people, for some of these businesses.
On New Year’s Eve we drew two winners from the receipts turned into us. The winner of $100.00 was Diane Peterson and the winner of $50.00 was Carol Rupp. Ask these ladies and I bet they will tell you “It pays to shop local!” Actually when Kathleen Crissman was turning in her receipts, she told me, “I purchased ALL of my Christmas gifts from local merchants this year!” Awesome ain’t it! What a great way to start 2015, please continue to shop local, eat local, and use local services!
