Winter shopping derby starts today, ends Feb. 10


The first Homer Chamber of Commerce Winter Shopping Derby starts today. Similar to last summer’s shopping derby, participants buy a $10 shopping derby ticket for a chance to win $1,000 in Homer Bucks, the town’s local currency. Each time derby ticket holders spend from $1 to $100 at participating merchants, they get their ticket stamped. Collect four stamps and the ticket holder gets a second chance to win. Each week a new winner will be drawn for prizes donated by local chamber member businesses.

Winter Shopping Derby tickets are on sale at the Homer Chamber of Commerce and Visitor Center and at participating businesses. The derby ends the last day of Homer Winter Carnival on Feb. 10.
