This holiday season, the Saipan Chamber of Commerce is asking the CNMI community to support local businesses, artists, and vendors by making all your purchases locally during the “Buy in the CNMI” campaign.
“Our local businesses are the lifeblood of our community. Every purchase at an on-island business goes back to our community through taxes, donations, and the creation of of local jobs. By keeping our dollars locally, we can invest in each other as an investment in our community,” said the Chamber in a statement yesterday.
For this upcoming holiday season, the Chamber asks that you spend all purchases at local businesses, then share with your family and friends why it is important to support local.
Additionally, the Chamber will be hosting a social media “Buy in the CNMI” campaign, with a sweepstakes opportunity to win $500 in gift certificates to the Chamber member establishments of the winner’s choice. To enter to win the sweepstakes on Facebook or Instagram:
1. Post a picture at one of our Chamber member establishments, and write why it’s important to “Buy in the CNMI” in the post. Chamber members will have a “Buy in the CNMI” sticker on their door, or can be found by visiting saipanchamber.com/buyinthecnmi.
2. Include #BuyintheCNMISweepstakes in the post.
