SKOWHEGAN – A Skowhegan business group wants to celebrate small business every day.
Beginning the first week of May, Main Street Skowhegan begins its “Shop Skowhegan” project.
As part of the effort to bring people to local businesses shoppers increase their chance of winning a prize by increasing the number of shops they frequent.
“The hope is that more people will spend money at our local businesses,” stated director Mary Haley. “And build a more sustainable economy that will help visitors and residents.”
Haley said shoppers should look for a red bucket next to registers at participating merchants for a chance to enter the weekly drawing.
