‘Virtual Sip and Shop’ Event Offers Gift Certificates

Greenwich Virtual Sip and Shop and the Greenwich Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors are rewarding participants in the recent Greenwich Virtual Sip and Shop with ten $100 gift certificates to ten local stores. That’s $1,000 worth of gift certificates. The Greenwich Virtual Sip and Shop has been running special promotions May 1 through 8 in advance of Mother’s Day, graduations and to support local retailers during these challenging times. In support of this effort, ten Board members of the Greenwich Chamber of Commerce have generously donated $100 each in gift certificates to further the support of local businesses. This event has been very successful in encouraging the community to support local independent retailers by shopping from home to help make sure these businesses are still here when we can all finally shop in person once again. To learn more, visit SipAndShopGreenwich.com for a chance to win the $1000 in gift certificates on Friday, May 8. read more...
