Dane Buy Local's Neighborhood Passport 2020

August 7-16


Presented by

Help support local businesses through the Dane Buy Local Neighborhood Passport 2020. As businesses are re-opening, let's help welcome them back!

Each participating business will be listed in the Neighborhood Passport, which encourages the public to visit your business. Instead of each business providing a small free gift to each visitor, a passport holder simply has to spend a minimum of $10 at five different businesses during the period August 7-16, then they submit an entry form with their receipts to be entered into a drawing for a valuable prize. Multiple prizes will be given, and a passport holder may enter more than once (five unique receipts for five unique businesses per entry). Passports are free to the public.

Prizes include:

A Clean Carpet: Gift Certificate - $99 Value 

Brother’s Main: Gift Certificate - $250 Value
