Lynchburg, VA – The holiday season is six months away, but the Lynchburg Retail Merchants Association is already celebrating.
Their Christmas in July promotion is underway through July 31 as part of the association's "Buy Local" campaign.
All you have to do is save your receipts from local restaurants or stores, write your name and phone number on the back, and turn them into the RMA. Then, the receipts will be drawn in a raffle next month for a slew of prizes.
Organizers say they don't want the wind storm to keep people from participating.
"It may have taken some of the fun away, but they have spent a lot of dollars locally in the last few days. Send in those receipts, get them off your dresser, get them out of your pocketbook or wallet," said Laurie Gulluscio, director of Marketing and Membership at Lynchburg RMA.
The raffle is part of a Local Business Expo on August 7 at River Ridge Mall.
