Will Santa be using hand sanitizer this Christmas? Are all the elves making face masks before crafting dolls, trains and games?

There’s no doubt that Christmas will be different in 2020, but the Lacombe Chamber of Commerce is ready to help shoppers and businesses celebrate.

This Christmas, your passport to special deals and prizes is the Get in the Loop app. Every year the Lacombe Chamber and Sunny 94 host Passport to Christmas to help Lacombe residents complete their Christmas list in town; this year Passport to Christmas is moving online.

“Moving Passport to Christmas to the Get in the Loop app helps to keep the community safe, and allows us to modernize the popular program,” says Monica Bartman, Executive Director of the Lacombe Chamber of Commerce.

Passport to Christmas

Get in the Loop is a Canadian phone app helping communities across the country boost local business. Businesses can advertise special offers and run loyalty programs like punch cards through the app. Shoppers can find all of Lacombe’s best deals in one place. Using Get in the Loop for Lacombe’s annual Passport to Christmas makes shopping easier for everybody! And if you have any questions, Get in the Loop’s local representative Tim Hurley is here to help.

“Since the Passport to Christmas launched in 2011 we’ve seen the number of participating businesses and residents grow,” Bartman says. “Along with that, we were able to track the dollars spent in our community with significant increases each year. In 2019, the program ran for six weeks and we tracked $4,178,100 spent at 78 participating businesses. That’s quite the impact! This new format is an exciting shift for us and we encourage residents to join us again as we support our local businesses through this holiday season.”

Passport to Christmas will launch on Nov. 26, the same day as Lacombe’s Light up the Night Festival, and continues to Dec. 24. Shop your heart out at participating businesses to improve your chances of winning great prizes!

Tune in to Sunny 94 on New Year’s Eve to listen to the live draw! The Grand Prize is $1500 in Lacombe Shopping Bucks, with runners up winning $750 or $500 Lacombe Shopping Bucks. Sign up early for a chance to win early bird draws with prizes from the Echo Lacombe Association.
