The Red Deer Downtown Business Association (DBA) is pleased to announce the launch of a new campaign, “It’s Downtown!”, to encourage Red Deer residents and visitors to support local downtown businesses.

Starting August 3 and continuing through to November 13, participating businesses will be displaying ballot boxes and encouraging visitors and customers to enter their name for a chance to win over $5000 in gift cards to businesses located all around Downtown Red Deer.

“Shopping local is key to the success of Downtown. This 4-month campaign gives you a reason to visit downtown, experience something a little different and support your local economy,” said Executive Director, Amanda Gould, “With over 50 businesses participating, you are sure to find something you love, and you may even win $5000 in downtown gift cards!”

With 54 downtown businesses participating, there are many opportunities to enter your name. The winner will be drawn on November 17 by DBA staff and the winner will have two hours to claim their prize.
