The Shop Local Extravaganza will encourage people to patronize local stores and  service businesses on Dec. 5, 12 and 19, with each purchase giving them an entry into prize drawings, including for a $500 gift card.

Local businesses are being invited to register by Nov. 30 to be a part of the Shop Local Extravaganza. Being hosted for the first time in 2020, the event will take place on Dec. 5, 12 and 19.

The initiative, organized by the Bethany-Fenwick Area Chamber of Commerce, in partnership with the Coastal Point, was created to support all of the local businesses of The Quiet Resorts, which includes businesses of Bethany Beach, Clarksville, Dagsboro, Fenwick Island, Frankford, Millville, Ocean View, Roxana, Selbyville and South Bethany.

Customers will be encouraged to “Shop, Savor, Stay & Splurge” for a chance to win a prize from their favorite local business, or one of three grand-prize $500 gift cards, supported by Sussex County’s Sussex Strong Initiative.

Every purchase of $20 or more at a participating business on Dec. 5, 12 or 19 grants that shopper an entry into that specific store’s drawing on Monday, Dec. 21, and a chance at the grand-prize drawing on Tuesday, Dec. 22.
