Help support local and #ShopInDurham this holiday season

Whitby, Ontario – Durham Tourism, and the Durham Region Joint Chambers of Commerce and Boards of Trade, have launched the new #ShopInDurham campaign with a special request for residents this holiday season: shop local.

The goal of the campaign is to spread the message that buying local will have a big impact for small businesses, while encouraging residents to shop local for their holiday gift-giving.

Shoppers can help spread the message of support by using the hashtag #ShopInDurham when sharing their holiday finds on social media; this is an opportunity for consumers to participate in the campaign and enter to win local products and services from Durham-based businesses.

Follow Durham Tourism on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram, and use #ShopInDurham for your chance to win one of eight grand prizes—including gift cards to businesses, restaurants and hotels across the region, and free opportunities to safely explore some of the amazing experiences Durham has to offer. Giveaway details will be posted on Durham Tourism’s social media accounts.
