SHOP LOCAL Macomb
*This contest is now closed. But we encourage you to continue shopping local and shopping Macomb County this holiday season.*
Did you know that there are nearly 1,600 independently owned and operated retailers in Macomb County? These unique stores enhance our main streets and help create a distinct sense of place for each of Macomb's 27 communities.
Through our Shop Local Macomb contest, we aim to help these local retailers during the holiday season. The best part? Shoppers have a chance to win one of ten $150 gift cards, donated by First State Bank, and an extra opportunity to help businesses receive a $1,000 grant. Businesses highlighted by consumers through photos will be automatically entered to win a grant. Winning shoppers and businesses will be announced on Monday, December 6.
