Sweet incentives offered to shop local in Poplar Bluff, MO

POPLAR BLUFF, MO (KFVS) -

Small businesses across the Heartland will be looking for a bump in sales from customers this holiday season.

For that reason, Poplar Bluff city leaders are finding creative ways to get you to spend locally.

So, what better way to get into the holiday shopping spirit than to incorporate sweet treats.

That’s right different types of cookies are scattered all over the city for you to taste while you shop.

The idea is simple.

Stop by the Poplar Bluff Chamber of Commerce to pick up the list of the 26 stores participating in this year’s cookie tour then get to shopping.

With each store, there are different cookies to try.

The Chamber of Commerce hopes this tasty idea will not only get people to shop local, but discover new stores they might not have heard about before.

The event kicked off on Friday and has already proven to be a great success.

The event runs through Saturday and you must visit all 26 stores to be entered into a drawing for a $100 gift certificate.
