Last summer, the Amesbury Chamber of Commerce worked with local business owners to develop a game that would encourage people to revisit shops, explore new businesses, and support our local non-profits.
The way it worked was that a limited number of businesses and non-profits signed up to be part of our gameboard (it was first come, first serve for sign-ups). Each business was assigned a spot on the board, sorted into property groups, and given their own special stack of property cards. Then, for the month of August, the public was challenged to collect those cards by visiting those businesses, making purchases, and making donations. Once a color category is collected, a person can return the set to the Amesbury Chamber for a chance to win that category’s cash prize, as well as for a chance to win the grand prize. And there was no limit to the number of times a participant could collect a foursome!
For August 2021, we have teamed up with Shea Concrete to once again bring Amesbury Shop Local-Opoly BACK! If you’re a business interested in participating in the 2021 game, then please complete and return the application (found HERE).
This program was developed to support out businesses by generating increased sales and awareness. We don’t want to forget about our non-profits, which is why every category has a designated space that we give to a non-profit. Participation is open to any Amesbury business or non-profit, though Amesbury Chamber members get a discount on their sign-up fee (to support our robust advertising campaign throughout the month of August).
If you have any questions, please feel free to call or text me directly on my cell phone. Space is limited, so sign-up while you can!
