Shop OV summer campaign launches May 1 | Community Spirit
The Town of Oro Valley will be hosting its summer campaign of ‘Shop Oro Valley’ from May 1 – July 1.
What this means is that during that time frame, both residents and visitors who shop at any business within Town limits and spend at least $25 are eligible to participate in a weekly gift card drawing sponsored by Oro Valley businesses.
Participation is simple. Just bring the receipts to Oro Valley Town Hall (11000 N. La Cañada Drive) Monday through Friday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. The winners will be announced each Friday at 5 p.m.; with the final prize, a $500 Oro Valley Marketplace gift card donated by Vestar, to be announced on July 1. All weekly winners are eligible for the final drawing.
“The Shop Oro Valley Campaign is an important reminder that sales tax is a major source of revenue for the Town,” said Mayor Satish I. Hiremath, in a recent news release. “Shopping locally ensures that your money stays in the community, providing funding for public safety, roads, parks and other services which contribute to our quality of life.”
Jeff Saunders, owner of Arizona Beds and one of the businesses participating in the summer campaign added, “As a small, locally-owned business, we appreciate customers who choose to shift their business to the community. Plus, the experience you receive is personalized and sincere.”
The Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce is also offering a bonus during the summer campaign, an additional $10, with the purchase of a $100 OV Dollars gift card from the Greater Oro Valley Chamber of Commerce.
The OV Dollars card program operates much like a regular gift card, but instead of only being able to use it at one retailer, shoppers can swipe their card at any of the participating businesses in Oro Valley. Cards can be purchased in denominations of $10 - $500, from the Town of Oro Valley Administration Building or at the Greater OV Chamber of Commerce (7435 N. Oracle Road, Ste. 107) Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m.
