Tis the Season to Shop Local with ACCC and participating retailers.

From October 15th to December 20th, it’s your chance to support Albert County independent retailers and get something in return!

Shop local and fill out or scan your visits to complete your virtual passport to win!

Each time you visit a participating shop (physical or online) in Albert County, you can fill in a ballot on-site, scan a QR code from the campaign poster or click their link to enter. Once you have visited all the participating retailers to fill your passport, you will be entered into a draw to win one of 50 $20 gift cards from the retailer of your choice. And you will be entered into our grand draw for the chance to win one of our two grand prizes of $500 in local gift cards. You can find participating retailers announced October 15th or look out for our Shop Local posters in store windows and business websites.
