Program Purpose

  • Create a shopper contest to generate more foot traffic to Oakland County small businesses — especially in our downtowns — to stimulate holiday sales.

  • Create a fun program to build shopper awareness on the value of visiting our small businesses all year long

Partner Role

  • Inform and engage small businesses in your communities and direct them to the digital Promotion Tool Kit.
  • Encourage small business retailers to register online for extra visibility.
  • Get the word out to shoppers.
  • Like and share information and stories on social media.
If you are interested in using the Oakland County shopper entries for special prizes in your community, please contact us as soon as possible. We will promote the special programs on the shopper section of the website.

Business Prize

Small Business Employee Contest

When the winning receipt is pulled for the Shopper Contest, Oakland County will check the employee identification on the receipt. That employee will win $500. We hope this contest creates an incentive for employees to encourage their customers to enter the Shopper Contest.
