The Retailers Association of Massachusetts has launched a new campaign aimed at helping Main Street businesses this holiday season.
The 5-Star #BuyInMA Challenge is offering chances to win prizes valued between $100 and $2,500 to shoppers who promote their favorite local retailer through their personal social media accounts. Local retailers include locally-owned restaurants and sandwich shops, crafts and homegoods shops, or other specialty stores.
The Association, known as RAM, is suggesting tasks shoppers can perform to earn chances as the prizes:
- Snap a selfie in their favorite local retailer
- Make a purchase or buy a gift card and share it via social media
- Leave a positive business review online
- Share, like, or engage a local retailers social media post
- Order take-out from your favorite local restaurant and share a picture
All social media posts must include the #BuyInMA hashtag to be entered at a chance to win. The businesses must be located in Massachusetts.
All entries must be in by Dec. 13.
