$500 for local shoppers

Decorah (KWWL) - It's been a very Merry Christmas for 20 shoppers in Winneshiek County.

On December 24th, the Decorah Chamber of Commerce and Decorah State Bank and Trust, gave away $10,000 to local shoppers.

Everytime someone shopped locally, they signed up for the drawing. Twenty names were drawn, each winning $500.

City officials estimate this helped pull $500,000 into the local economy. Cresco did a similar shop local campaign and gave away $3,000 to six people.
