Shop Where Your Heart Is Campaign
Posted Oct-14-2021

Shop Where Your Heart Is

For a four-month period, from October 2021 to the end of January 2022, the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce is operating a “Shop Where Your Heart Is” Campaign. This program will be offered in partnership with the DBIA (Downtown Brockville Improvement Area) and the City of Brockville. Throughout the four-month duration of the Campaign, we will be encouraging consumers to shop locally to support and strengthen our local economy. 

The first initiative of the “Shop Where Your Heart Is” Campaign is a monthly prize draw that will run for the entire four-month period of the Campaign. Each month from the 1st to the 29th, consumers will have the opportunity to shop locally and be rewarded for it. 

How does it work?

  • Shop at local businesses between the 1st and 29th of each month (October-January).
  • Collect a minimum of three receipts from purchases made locally in an envelope provided by the Brockville & District Chamber of Commerce. “Shop Where Your Heart Is” envelopes will be supplied to local businesses and you can ask to collect one upon your purchase. In the case that the business does not have envelopes provided by the Chamber, you can visit the Chamber office to submit your receipts and we will happily provide you with one. Shop Where Your Heart is envelopes are also available from the Customer Service desk in City Hall.
  • Drop off your envelope to the Chamber Office to be entered into that month's prize draw. Envelopes containing your three receipts and contact information (name, phone number) can be dropped off at the mailbox located outside of the Brockville and District Chamber of Commerce Office – 3 Market Street West, Suite #1, Brockville, Ontario. From there, envelopes will be collected and each person’s name will be entered into a prize draw. 


The deadline to submit your envelope containing three receipts from local purchases is the 29th of each month.

On the 1st of each month, the winner of the prize draw from the previous month will be announced. 

If you would like to have “Shop Where Your Heart Is” envelopes in your store and to participate in this community-driven initiative then please make an inquiry. We ask that you inform consumers of the details required for the opportunity to be entered into a draw upon their purchase. This will allow for us to encourage them to continue shopping local in order to be rewarded.
