Chamber of Commerce launches 2nd “buy locally” campaign

The 2nd annual “If we buy in Peñasco, we all Win” campaign (Si en Peñasco compramos, todos ganamos) of the local Chamber of Commerce seeks to promote local businesses while offering a variety of raffle prizes.

Dozens of businesses have already registered to participate in this year’s program, which will culminate in the grand raffle to be held in front of the local Chamber of Commerce office on September 5th.

canaco-sept5Guillermo Muñoz Fierro, President of the National Chamber of Commerce, Services and Tourism office in Puerto Peñasco (CANACO) reports that in just two weeks since the campaign’s launch, 30% of the nearly 145 CANACO affiliated businesses have already signed up.  He explained within the “If we buy in Peñasco, we all will” program, business sponsorship packages range in cost from 1500 to 9000 pesos (which are open to both CANACO affiliates and those not yet affiliated).

These packets also come with a sign for the participating business, advertising via megaphone, and a spot on large LED screens.
