Take the 2010 Local Lover Challenge!

What is the Local Lover Challenge? It’s a game that encourages Ithacans to do their holiday shopping, while thinking locally. You get to support the local economy, have fun shopping at your favorite places, and win free stuff!

Over 80 local businesses in and around Ithaca will participate this year in our 3rd annual Local Lover Challenge.

How do you play? Just pick up a card at any participating business, like Felicia's, GreenStar, Buffalo Street Books, Rasa Spa and Red Feet Wines, get your card stamped at each business you visit (no purchase necessary!), and when your card has 5 stamps, fill in the back and drop it in a box!

You’ll be entered to win cash cards in the amount of $50, $150, and $250, as well as gift certificates to local shops. Check out our website for a list of participating businesses.
